The Big One (26-2)

Friday the 5th of October 2012

Doncaster Moorings

Another cold morning and the fire died out in the night. First job on the list was to rekindle the fire. Whist I was doing my bit the Memsahib busied herself with the washing.

Later a small tug left the moorings heading through the Doncaster town lock. A short time afterwards the Humber Princess passed by on her way back to Goole.

We met up with an old friend Steve aboard Nb Little Lucy. Steve was on his way back to his home mooring at Tinsley. Assisted by "Noddy" the blind cat and "Wee Whiskey" the dog! I was later invited out shopping round the outdoor market in Doncaster. The fun never stops!

There was an old sailing barge moored up on the pontoons. Built in 1923 and currently undergoing a refurbishment.  There has been a four cylinder Gardiner diesel engine added. 

I'm looking forward to seeing her develop over time. 

We were rather lucky to be invited aboard for a look around. My first thought was Tardis, she was so deceiving from the outside to the amount of space inside. 

She later set out on a journey to her new moorings at Bramwith. 

I have created a poll that will run between now and the 1st of January 2013. It's not very scientific. Its a simple question "Will CART Succeed". You have three choices Yes, Unsure and No. Now you can vote for one of the three choices. If you change your mind before the poll closing date. You can come back and change your vote. (I wish we could do that for politicians) You will find the poll option on the right hand side just below the members pictures.
