I am having to place a watermark on the blog content as someone on Facebook is stealing photos and claiming them as their own. I wouldn't mind if they asked first and attributed it to my blog. If it continues I will name and shame them. I hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment.

Hawksbury Junction to near Br. 80.

Hawksbury Junction was cold and windy this morning.

TQ taking on water.

We stopped at Sutton Stop to enquire about a new bow thruster battery,  but they were a bit on the expensive side so I didn't buy one, but they did have an offcut of 40mm2 black cable which turned out to be long enough to fit where I needed it to go. It was terminated at both ends and heat shrink wrapped for good measure.
We also had a pump-out and that was enough for one day, as it was all a little expensive.

At least by now it had stopped raining and stayed stopped for the rest of the day.

We were hoping to moor close to Br. 79 but when we got there someone had only just beaten us to it, so we had to press on and near Br. 80 there were some suitable pilings vacant so we occupied them.

Lucy? Blotto as usual.
