It has been a heavy weekend what with a couple of birthdays to celebrate one on Friday in the boat club and the other on Saturday night in The White Swan at Torksey. Time now to give the livers a rest before next weekends session begins.
Naughty-Cal proved to perform faultlessly again this weekend and the new inverter we installed last weekend has proven to be capable of all we intended for it to do. It was nice to be able to use the slow cooker again whilst we are out cruising. I have missed having a hot meal ready to eat after a days cruising in the cold weather.
As we are heading out onto the tidal Trent next weekend to give Naughty-Cal her first high speed test of the year we have decided to take the heaters out of the engine bay. We are now fully dewinterised for the year. It's nice to have some space back in the boat, although the heaters do a sterling job of keeping the boat warm and frost free, they do take up a lot of space in a small boat. Now Cal is in her fully stripped down summer mode.
Hopefully she is up for her first test of 2015.
