Petroc was built by Darren Aldridge Boats. We are very pleased with her as she is light and airy and also comfortable to live on. This will be our eleventh year of cruising throughout the summer. (Of a 5 year plan!) We let our house in Cornwall out to holidaymakers, see the link on right hand side

Lapworth in the sunshine
....and not a drop of rain all day
One of Geoff's favourite pastimes......gossipping at the locks!
Well that was a much better day......the promised frost was there at 7.30 when I took Barney for his first walk but the sun was also there so it was very pleasant.
Lots of sun all day and 19 locks completed!! We were slightly tired to say the least when we moored just before Hockley Heath at 2pm. However the thought of not having to cook was enticing so we walked another 3/4 of a mile to the Wharf pub at Hockley Heath and partook of their Sunday Roast.
By the time we had walked back to Petroc we were completely done in.......is it something to do with ones advancing years???
Total distance:5.56 miles Elapsed time:4h54m48s Locks:19 Bridges:19 Average speed:1.13 mph(5.00 lock/mph)
