Didn't move at all today. Stayed snug and warm inside FS listening to the rain beating down on the boat which sounded worse because of the constant drips from the overhanging trees. The problem we had with water getting into the well deck seems to have got worse. No we haven't sprung a leak, it's coming through the press stud fixings on the tie backs on the vinyl cratch cover. It's been letting water in for a while and I suggested some sort of silicone paste smeared over the fixings but Ian's not sure. He is thinking of removing the studs and then adding the silicone over the holes before reinstating them. Maybe something to think about when we get back to Langley Mill. In the meantime the containers placed strategically will have to do.
|This amount of water from this morning..|
Think tomorrow may be a better day so the 23 locks of the Wigan flight will be tackled. Going to start early and try to do the whole lot before the schoolkids come out at 3pm.
