Unfortunately the heavy downpour yesterday evening enabled rain to get under one of our new vent covers that Barry hadn’t had chance to seal up yet and water dripped onto the power inverter. So we’re now without 240v power and left with only 12v, hence we are not able to charge phones or the camera battery – horror of horrors!
A sad looking inverter
Barry spent the morning doing some engine and general man’s maintenance stuff (!) and took the inverter down from the wall to dry out.
These geese came and had a snarling match with the dog on the boat behind us
After a short drive down the canal, we arrived in Lincoln at lunchtime. It’s a long lead up to get into the town, with a huge array of residential moorings along the canal; some of them look like they haven’t left the side for years! Once into Lincoln there is a large basin called Brayford Pool, where there are dozens of large cruisers moored. The canal then continues on under bridges and we found a place to moor shortly afterwards.
Wouldn't trust this one!
Looked like a very old barge
Brayford Basin, lovely now but must've been an eyesore a few years ago
Through the 'Glory Hole' or 'Murder Hole' as it was called. Cafe and shops overhead
