I found I'd missed an e-mail from the surveyor yesterday. He said that he'd put back the second part of the survey by a day on account of the snow. (No snow here in Norfolk, just lots of rain today).
I told him that if it would be better to finish off the survey with the boat in water (it would, wouldn't it?) then we wouldn't mind waiting.
Meanwhile ... here is the photo the surveyor took of the rudder. Before re-blacking, of course. This is the first photo I've published of the boat - I'm not giving much away, am I?
I see the boat has a propeller. That's handy.
(pause for Ray to comment...)
Churnet - As planned, Brother Nº 3 and Wife met us at the Holly Bush Inn for a day's excitement. As hoped, the overnight rain died away at more or less the same time...
