Ready for Launching ‘Sandpiper’

Wired up, and read to go
After cutting the lawns and trimming the hedge I was ready for the insurance assessor. He arrived at 13.30 and he took half-an-hour to do a thorough investigation of the plumbing incident that happened on Monday. The upshot is that the kitchen ceiling will be repaired and the whole kitchen will be repainted to match the new paint that will cover the stained wall. I shall have to pay an excess fee which may be less than the cost of putting things right.

Packing odd and ends
After the insurance assessor left, I had the remainder of the day to sort out the boat and make her ready for launching. Hopefully, I’ll be able to take her to Burnham Yacht Harbour on Thursday morning after an early shopping trip to buy food, some of which will be stowed aboard before I hit the road.

The car has to go into the garage on Friday for a service, which means I shall not be able to set off from Burnham until the weekend. The forecast gives showers on Saturday morning, and Sunshine on Sunday.

Hi, love the boat, curious as to what the solar panel powers? Good luck this weekend!

Forecast is looking cooler this weekend, but I believe the long range is saying the May BH weekend is going to be a cracker.... I shall be out for my first sail on Sunday hopefully!
