We have had several nights out with friends whilst getting Petroc all shipshape, now it is time to return to sensible eating. Geoff lost 2 stone over the winter and I managed almost a stone, but saying goodbye to everyone tends to put some back on...can't think why!
So after saying our goodbyes to all at Clifton this morning we set sail (as you do) just after 9am........however it was not to be the most auspicious of first days cruising..........
We had to stop after 2 miles and Geoff had to resume his least favourite position as we had a nasty vibration.
After a gentle siesta (Geoff's routine) he decided to explore down the weed hatch again.......this time he discovered that we have a slight nick out of one of the blades on the propeller. Needless to say this has not been good for his stress levels............either we have to put up with the vibration all summer or we have to consider a new propeller...AAGH!
On the bright side we have a nice neighbour
