Pumped Up

We have had a fairly productive weekend on the boat as well as being out and about and meeting up with friends old and new.

After our Friday evening out in Lincoln we headed back to the marina so that Liam could fit the new pressure switch to the water pump. We had taken a flier on this being the problem with the pump and it turned out to be the right choice. With the new switch in place the pump works as good as new again. In hindsight this switch has been on its way out for some time as it had started taking longer to build up pressure, now with the new switch in place it is pretty instant.

We also got a few other bits and bobs sorted out. Mostly cleaning jobs and Liam has removed one of the helm seat back rests to carry out a small repair at work this week in readiness for the new cockpit upholstery which should be getting done in the next week or so. I also retreated the cockpit teak. It probably didn't need it but we had the stuff to hand so did it anyway.

In between jobs we did have time to enjoy ourselves as well. We had a lovely evening in Lincoln and then on Saturday evening had a lovely evening in Saxilby followed by a chilled out and relaxed day yesterday at the Pyewipe and on our home berth in the marina, where we finished off the weekend with a really very nice slow cooked chicken served with carrots and purple sprouting broccoli.
