Today Newark Showground was holding the annual boat jumble. We met Dennis and Margaret (Nb Icing) at the entrance and this year there seemed to be more stalls and a lot more people.
We spent a very pleasant couple of hours looking round and managed to buy our bitumen (3 5ltr tins) for £34. We nearly walked past the stall because the tins were plain white but luckily Ian stopped to ask what make of bitumen it was and turns out it was a Paintmaster. We also found 12mm hemp rope, 30meters, for £28. I bought myself a new ledger rod which Ian reluctantly paid for as I had left my purse at home and something Ian has been looking for for a long time, a PTFE block to cut up and put on our hatch slide to make it easier to open. It's really heavy to move and for me to open it I have to put my back against it and push.
