This boat was moored in Banbury and i didn't have a clue what the name meant until a very wise old man (Keith cabin boy, Nb Oakfield) explained it to me. During the ageing process, at least 2% of the whisky in each barrel evaporates through the oak. The distilleries refer to this portion as the Angels’ Share…. Well, Its always been known that whisky is a heavenly drink!
Here we go again , Ann (Captain of Nb Oakfield) leading the way. Its Curry club day at Wetherspoons in Banbury…. Decisions ,decisions. Do we go in or not, of course we did and we even went back for Fish club on the following day. Just the ticket !!!!!!!
This guy poled past Inca with a huge smile on his face. I asked him if he had a problem with his engine and apparently it blew up many months ago. He has pulled and poled it all the way from Oxford and it has so far taken him 4 months. When i asked him how far he was going he replied “Birmingham”. He said he was retired and time didn't matter to him. Sooner him than me…
Its now time for the big Spring clean on Inca, both inside and out.While Carolyn has been busy shopping both sides of Inca have now been polished and then had a coat of wax applied. I have now painted the Gunnels and sorted out and cleaned the roof . We are now looking good for our continuing journey towards Bath.
