Summer Autumn Cruise 2011 (6-6)

Friday September 30th

Goole Boatyard
Day 41

A dry start to the day, for the first time since the hot spell started the boat was not covered in dew this morning. The weather soon warmed up and we have been lounging around and enjoying it. Humber Princess arrived this morning empty and moored up next to Humber Pride.

A few boats who moored outside the club house left early to make the run back to Doncaster. There has been a steady flow of leisure boats all day in and out of the marina. Including one that looked like a converted lifeboat.

I have been working on a problem with the battery bank. After a great deal of head scratching I found that one of the inter-battery straps has a loose crimped connection. This must have been like this since Rosie was built. The plastic insulation over the strap was holding the un-crimped connection together. Instead of four batteries we are now working on a bank of two.

A second visit to the boathouse clubhouse is on the cards for tonight.
