A Journey Starts

      1. We are aware that times have changed since we sold up, so I’m not surprised. With the winter months coming, it might pay to wait though apart from condensation problems (which everyone on a boat has, even if they’ve had double glazing fitted), we were cosy. The biggest drawback was when it rained and trying to dry our outdoor clothes, so we were glad of the helm and bow covers. We used film on the windows that you seal with a hairdryer to reduce the condensation, and made sure we had plenty of air flow under and around the bed, in the bathroom and cupboards. We learned as we went and discovered that cake boards made perfect bungs for our porthole windows!

      2. Cake boards? 😊 awesome πŸ€—. I can’t remember did you store your things somewhere before you got the boat? And were the canals close by? We are mainly watching Wilton and Venetian Marina for boats. That’s quite a way away from where we are currently. πŸ€—

      3. Here are our porthole stuffers

        We’d already got rid of a lot of furniture etc when we knew we were going to downsize, so did have some stuff in storage when we moved out. When we bought the boat, we got rid of everything and sadly some things got sent to charity by mistake. We were on the River Avon at Tewkesbury Marina. Our licence only covered the Avon, but we could get up to Stratford Upon Avon which we did several times. We had to get a 7 day licence for the canals for brokerage though.

  1. It can be scary to feel like we’re losing ourselves. And you’ve been through some real scary s*** in your life, so I know you can do this. Sometimes a little unbalance can be good if we have a part of us that remains strong to the core. Then, it could be an opportunity for growth.
