We had a 'do' in one of the marina huts. It was a good turnout - we kicked off at 14.00 hrs and called time at 19.00 hrs. I even drank Fosters ....yuk!

Which brings us to today ... this morning I thought the boat smelt a bit whiffy - especially the bedroom ...I removed some of Elaine's socks but it was still there!
So, I pulled out some crap from under the bed and noticed that it was very damp and mouldy at the back of the mattress and on the wall under the bed. I think the problem was that we had so much stuff under there that it was restricting air flow - although, to be fair, I think boats plus damp weather are a pretty good formula for mould!
So today we decided to have a massive clean-out and clean-up of all the wardrobes and under the bed. We bought a fan heater to give it all good dry-out and an airing ... it seems to have done the trick.
Tomorrow we will go to Macclesfield to see Elaine's dad - while we are there we will replace the few bits and bobs that we dug out today .. back into our storage boxes there! We need to concentrate on our 'air flow' issues in the cupboards on the boat !
Tomorrow night we are off down the Swan in Stone for 'early doors' as quite a lot of people are escaping the marina soon and it could be our last drink with them before we all go our separate ways in March. (Carol and Barry are off to Thailand, Mick is off to Oz and we are off to Cornwall).
