The boat hadn't travelled very far and as you can see the ice has taken all the protective paint off the hull and its now back to bare metal.That's not good as the rust will soon start to eat into all that lovely unprotected metal. The owner will have to get some blacking on that as soon as possible.
We are now getting very itchy feet again, but we are not prepared to move with so much ice still on the cut . I know we have everything we need here but we just love to be on the move. The plan is to cruise down the South Oxford Canal for a few weeks and hopefully pick up some firewood on our travels as we have now just about run out.
