What's happened to the weather?

I'm aboard Southern Crusader next (easter) week for the first outing after her annual maintenance.

Was looking forward to basking in the sunshine after the mini heatwave but at least it'll be warmer down there than it is in the freezing North.

I guess I'll just have to blag someone else's week later in the year if it's too cold to enjoy. LOL

We had the heat wave while we were on the broads last week but it was very cold as the sun went down, If you've room take another quilt, We had a 15tog king quilt we have just to use on the boat then the boat one on top and it worked great.

Hmm, thanks for the good advice, I'll pack a big duvet and a big coat, hat, gloves etc.

Be like me - Nanook of the North.    Socks pants thick vest and pyjamas, might not look sexy but at my age I think sense comes above what I look like.    We have the highest tog on the bed and a memory mattress and a quilted mattress topper underneath as well.    Not quite got to using the hot water bottles I have bought but if it gets much colder they will come into use as well.  Good test - when you speak if you can see your breath, get back under the duvet smartish.   he who draws the short straw gets out , start the heating , be it whatever you have and makes the cup of tea.   By the time you have had your cuppa , all is well with the world and you start to think.  yes where else would I rather be.







Women dont nag they just point things out...

I heard on the weather news that it was -6 in parts of our region last week. Most/a lot of boats will now be de-winterised so hope they will be alright!

Regards
Colin

Take my advice - there is nothing so nice as messing about on the river.

Luckily SC was warm & dry in Broom's shed last week Wink

For reasons I won't go into, she wasn't winterised at all this year, but appears to have survived O.K.

Let's see whether she can survive my poor boat handling skills now, I'm not used to these skittery things with 3M topsides and no nice big fin underneath LOL
