Repatriation of the boat

is progressing well.

The hotel and crossing to France is booked.

The house/dog-sitter is booked.

 The French crane is booked.

The low-loader is booked.

The boatyard at Oundle is booked.

Yesterday, MWNN and I visited Oundle boatyard to finalise the timings of various surveyors and remedial works before we can cruise down to Blackthorn Marina.

We lunched at The Ship, a family-run pub that is over 450 years old. The meal was very good indeed.

The Ship, Oundle

With a bit of luck, and a following wind, we may be at our new mooring by the middle of September.
