Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Completed front well

Yesterday finished the paint job on the front well with lockers and seating round the sides for viewing the scenery as the boat cruises by.

So its on to the main well of the boat with varnishing of the walls, it will take some drying in this weather, I will then get on with the superstructure side windows whilst that is drying.

Once years ago we were honorary members of a narrow boat crew at North Cheshire Cruising Club and  even went as far as looking round to buy one ourselves but after looking at all the rules and regulations and Velda's comments "I could walk faster " decided to give it a miss. At a £1,000 a foot its not a decision to be taken lightly ( smallest ones 50 foot ).  and that was about 10 years ago goodness knows what the prices are like now !

This boat of mine will work out at about £80 per foot and no fuel bills. only a rechargabell  battery and no mooring fees, still its what ever floats your boat isn't it, it wouldn't do for us all to be the same would it.
