Two weeks ago we flew up to visit the good ship. The trip was badged as a maintenance exercise but to be honest the only work we absolutely had to do was grind and grease her seacocks and clean the prop. Everything else could be done at Easter. She'd been hauled out a few weeks earlier so we were good to go.

Eider Duck, Cockney Mallard and Chirpy Chick were all well, although it has to be said that Cockney was a bit grumpy having been left for 6 months.
We spent Saturday tinkering on sea cocks and the prop and compiling lists of stuff that would need doing before we head off through the Caledonian Canal at Easter.
Since we've visited she's been put back in the water and we are now ready to go for Easter hols.
