My mystery picture must have been too difficult. Here, then, is the uncropped photo.
I'm spending three nights on Jubilee while I help Ally and Ben with their house. I arrived last night at about midnight - and the boat was FREEZING! Well, all right, not literally, but it was certainly too cold for comfort. It was too late to light the fire; and a quick check on the central heating header tank showed that it was empty. Er, why? So I couldn't put the heating on. The sleeping bag I'd brought was a bit thin; consequently I spent the coldest night I've ever tried to sleep on board, and thats even after I put two blankets on top. At 0500 I piled all my clothes on top as well, but I still woke up cold. I switched on the immersion heater and lit the fire. After what I thought was long enough I got in the shower - but it was cold! Aargh! At least I was able to get dressed in relative warmth.
When I saw A+B today they said there are two sleeping bags on board I can put on top. I will do that now.
If I get any time off from house work I'll investigate the empty header tank problem.
