Jobs Done Ready To Cruise Further Afield

NB Bendigedig's New Cratch
Yesterday the cratch cover was fitted while we were moored near the 'Fox and Anchor' near Coven. We're pleased with the result although it'll take a bit of getting used to. To tie up the boat I now need to get on the bow and to jump off at bridge holes I need to stand on the gunnels before I can jump off. Ben's enjoying looking through the there'll be dog nose marks to clean off.

Once the job was done it was down the winding hole annoying all the fisherman on the way and turning around..... annoying them again. So we headed towards Gailey for the night as below the lock there usually plenty of room. We moored up and much later another boat moored up too, with a Great Dane onboard which was very distracting for Ben when he having a wee in the hedge!

I would suggest you have 2 ropes on your bow stud and run one back each side of the cratch board into the cockpit. Then when you come in to moor you wont need to reach round the cratch board to get the rope as it will be to hand in the cockpit whichever side you need it.
