One of the trips to the boat over the last few days meant I could take my Christmas presents over there. Rachel has discovered Nauticalia which means I get some useful gifts for the canal boat owner.
What you can see is the brass paraffin lamp that will help the batteries over the coming months. The bits you can't easily see is the fold away bow saw and perhaps my favourite a lovely brass map magnifying glass for those days pre planning routes and walks with the OS maps.
The beer is mandatory of course.
This one is for Heth to show ours in full burn, dog is an optional accessory but we tend to find she appears when the fire reaches temp.
The one thing the eco fan is good for is temp awareness as a slow spin means more coal.
The retirement trip all in reverse ...
