Today's task was to get up to Whilton, where Sickle had been left, get one or two things sorted, then commence moving south with both boats.
|Small Woolwich "Planet" - Not one I ever recall seeing before.|
|Trevor Maggs' "Corona" looking fantastic after a recent repaint.|
I guess some of the boats already congregated at or around Stoke Bruerne will be attending the Gala Day there, the weekend after next. There are usually a selection of interesting boats, but there were ones I have not seen before on this passage through.
|"Large Woolwich" Butty "Bordesley" in superb BW colours|
"Lone butties" was also a bit of a theme. Several boats are now around that look immaculate, externally at least.
|"Little Woolwich" "Cygnus" - yours for just shy of £30,000!|
|Having just turned Sickle, Chalice is still pointing North|
|Environmental disaster caused by misfuelling an unfamiliar range!|
|Both boats at Whilton, ready to head South.|
Long Pound, Stoke Bruerne
