....is that it is a constant reminder to maintain your boat!
I have a Canal boat mag that seems to have taken residence in the bathroom basket that hold fresh towels. It is the one where they give advice on maintaining paintwork. Every time I sit and ponder I read the front cover and it reminds me I have a responsibility to the paint job Aqua did on Waterlily earlier this year.
It got to me in the end and on Sunday we spent an 'enjoyable' few hours cleaning the boat. Getting the Rook poo off was one challenge as was washing off the tree sap from the non slip roof.
It was also a good reason to take Waterlily to the winding hole at Alrewas to enable us to complete the other side as well as charge the batteries. It was a perfect wind but not a sole saw it - typical. Now we have a clean boat plus she is facing the way we prefer for a short trip out in the next few weeks. We also received a nice compliment on how she looked so that was worth the hard work.
No not Waterlily, you must be joking she is my (our) sanctuary. Sometimes we do not even have to be aboard but we know we can be and that makes a difference
Aqua narrowboats are selling one of their boats. They did a good job on Waterlily when they painted her earlier in the year and seem a good company to do business with. I would expect this to be a well looked after boat.
