Nearly ready



Well Dean spent last weekend polishing and scrubbing Awol so she is beginning to look pretty good now. Need to do one or two more jobs to get her A1 but well on the way. Looking forward to doing a shake down cruise/fish just to ensure everything works prior to the club trip over the channel.


Doing a radar course this coming Sunday to try and learn how to use the on board kit properly. Following weeks it will be out and about playing on the boat....at last

Used Awol more this year than the last couple of years, mostly for cruising and family days with some fishing thrown in. Had a great time with other club members earlier in the year crossing the channel to Alderney
Had loads of work undertaken on the boat this year.  First was the engine bay hatch adapted to stop water spilling into the bilges, engine bay fire extinguisher replaced, new batteries, battery charger and shore power all fitted.   Engine out to allow new hydraulic steering hoses to be fitted plus cleaning bilges and painting all those inaccessible parts.  Also had some of the outside upholstery recovered.  Awol is now better than she has been for a while.  All that's left to do is the annual cut and polish we are then ready for the beginning of the 2014 season not that we have finished using her this winter yet.
