Welcome back. January 2021 and another lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Chrissie is still in Aston Marina waiting for us to be able to cruise. Restrictions dictate that we are forbidden to visit our boat let alone go cruising until further notice. Lets hope the vaccine roll-out works as predicted and we can start to rebuild our lives.
August and September 2021

Chrissie is on dry land in Stoke Boats for some well deserved TLC, blacking, antifreeze change, top plank painting, stern colours repainted, fitting a “bubble tester” in the gas line for regular checking of any small gas leaks etc.
Mid September and on our way to Longport from Aston Marina Stone by train to collect Chrissie.
