Marge and Parge, do you have the numbers for next weeks lottery? because you were certainly right in your prediction! before the boat arrived on the broads, we had anti fouling done, changed the annodes etc painted the leg (in the proper paint!!) - when it arrived, we did the name change AGUAMENTI - had the boat certificated, installed a 200l waste tank for the toilet, fitted new carpets and a few other jobs LOL !! then my daughter went off with her boyfriend for a weeks break, and they did, break it that is ! not their fault but the gear cable snapped, just in the process of having it repaired by Gary at Brundall, I bought a 2600kg double axle trailer to get it in and out of the water (and potentially save some money in the long term - especially as long term thoughts are to take her to france for a summer - IF we decide we like it  )

anyway, perhaps now we can get out on the water, oops, forgot, we go to back to france next week for at least three weeks - ah well, at least we can use her when we get back .....unless ....

so, the latest is that after having the cable replaced and returning from france, we tried a day out. almost a disaster, struggled to get it out of the mooring, nudged a couple of boats on the way out, thank goodness for big fenders ! drove around quite happily for a few hours, moored up in a couple of places for practice, then when we came to get her back in the mooring, what a shambles !! I struggled so much thatr I had to go out into the main river while the 'rescue rangers' came to our aid and brought us back !

after watching gary drive it back in, I though what a plonker I was ! I had been trying to put it in and out of drive, instead of just driving straight in at absolute minimum revs!

LATEST - went out on Friday with a very experienced boat person, I went into the mooring 5 times out of 5, without any problems whatsoever - obviously helps when you've watched someone do it properly !! moored up for petrol and pump out easily, so I am a happy boater again - not that I wont of course make more mistakes along the way, but hey, isn't that part of the fun ......??
