We have two dead batteries and details of our PREVIOUSLY smashed wheelhouse and it’s only 8:24 am!
Okay, the wheelhouse is CURRENTLY in one piece, but it WAS smashed – sometime ago. The book, about Lionel (see last post), reveals that our boat has already traversed the Canal du Midi a long time ago… back then, they mis-calculated a bridge measurement and the wheelhouse didn’t make it!
My mum has the book with these details and is telling me, much too calmly for my liking, about the bridges.
“WHICH, bridge?” (betting it is the Capestang or Marengo)
“Did they re-build the wheelhouse lower?”
…and now I wait with baited breath… especially as we have just paid three months rent for our winter mooring in the Canal du Midi (Buzet du Baisse)!
Two batteries are looking rather poorly this morning, we were hoping they would last (the other two didn’t), so it looks like two more new ones are on the cards…sigh.
That said, it’s raining and our rain-catcher is working a treat! And Noel’s just announced he is going on the internet to seek psychiatric help. Happy days! 🙂
