set up for lift at eyemouth
beatrice 'Bt' does a job act looking important and keeping the crowds at bay. It throw it down all day keeping any tourist away thankfully....
coastal marine, eyemouth's boat yard, did a great job in lifting her in and then the mast, much thanks to them for all there help and assistance.
checking for leeks! oh my i quite lost the plot thinking all the water in here was sea water, but it turned out she just got so much rain inside her having had her cover of in 3hrs of pouring rain.
this is the point when i listen to the good reasoning of the boat yard man, and calm down a little....
as i left chuckle sheeted in the rain thursday night. I must thank the harbor master for assuring me she would be kept a close eye on and bilges pumped if required. felt so bad not to have both filled with water to have checked for leaks before we put her in and not having installed an auto bilge pump.
I fitted the auto bilge pump yestarday, so i had a great nights sleep last night, no insult to the harbor masters i know they would keep an eye on her. It has been felt that the pump was not nessasrey on monday morning as she was not letting in hardly any water if any, but i fitted one all the same, as i had been to newcastle to get it and i guess it would be good to know its now in.
