The old cement came out easily with an old screwdriver and then I vacuumed out the area before spraying it with matt black high temperature paint and allowing it to go off before applying the silicone.
|Quite a neat job.|
We had a lovely cruise into Braunston, brilliant sunshine all the way. We winded in the entrance to Braunston Marina and moored on the water point to fill the tank. With that done we moved TQ up a few yards to the 48 hour mooring and strolled into the village for some previously forgotten sundries. As we headed out of Braunston a kingfisher flew alongside hopping from one hedgerow twig to another many yards ahead and waited for us to catch up. He did this several times until we were well out of the village. We're now heading in a Hillmorton direction just outside of Braunston.
