The last time we left the canopies off the boat all week we vowed never to do it again. We got back to the boat a week later to find it covered in bird muck and arrived in the middle of a heavy rain shower.
Well guess what? We did it again!
Will we ever learn? Most probably not but we have decided what ever the weather when we arrive at Burton Waters tonight we are keeping them off. There seems little point in refitting them to take them off again at dinner time tomorrow when we head out onto the Wash on the way to Wells next the Sea.
So we will probably be met with a soggy boat when we arrive and we will probably get a little wet on the way to Boston but will we care?
Not a jot. We are going to be on holiday.
