An excerpt from Wind in the Willows

Nice? It's the ONLY thing, said the Water Rat solemnly, as he leant forward for his stroke. Believe me, my young friend, there is NOTHING - absolute nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing, he went on dreamily: messing - about - in - boats; messing----'

Nice little trip up the Wey

This weekend was Byfleet Boat Club's 3rd Friday Social event and our annual winter BBQ on the Saturday.

'Poddled' up single-handed on the Friday morning with great help at Coxes Lock from a fisherman - see they are not all bad! and decided to go all the way to Pyrford Marina to turn rather than doing that on the Sunday morning.

A quiet '3rd Friday' but it is early in the year.  The BBQ was excellent with 20% of the membership attending.

I have seen the results of fitting a 12v TV and a 12v fridge this weekend with no need to run the inverter all weekend and only running the engine once mainly for hot water.

Back down to Addlestone this morning in company with Aqua Vitae and now home again - need to plan some more boating.
