Before Bonnie could be transported by road from Scotland to Essex, we had to cut 18 inches off the coach roof so that she would fit under the motorway bridges. This was okay but left the door just 3ft high, fine for little people, but for most of us it meant bending down into a very unnatural position just to get in. Now Pete has made this lovely, temporary, sliding hatch, making life so much easier. It is also amazing how much extra light there is.
He has also fitted a bilge pump, tyres for fenders, navigation lights and 12 new anodes, all to get her ready for her journey home. The new hatch means that the crew will be able to get to the kettle with ease!
Last Saturday the cadet parents laid on a Carribbean Night, strictly for the grown ups. There were lots of highly coloured shirts and sarongs along with jerk chicken and rum punch. There were also a few pirates and these vodoo men from James Bond. Unfortunately, Johnny Depp was nowhere to be seen. Looking at these photos, we really are going to have to discuss the type of members we let into the club!!!
