Thursday 16th October 2008

Thursday 16th October 2008 is LAUNCH day !!!!!!!
The long range weather forecast looks as if launching Caxton into the R. Severn will be able to go ahead as planned. Joe and I will be up very early that morning to ensure that we get across country and are ready and waiting when the crane arrives to lift Caxton onto the back of the lorry for the journey to the launch site.

Very exciting!

Fingers crossed that the weather holds. You will have some nervous moments when Caxton is in mid air, I hated watching Shambles being lifted out.

What wonderful news.
Well worth watching the craning in - it's an awesome sight. Don't forget the champagne!

Oooh er missus. Glad the weather forecast is going to be good as we are going for our last trip on the shareboat starting on the 17th.

Hope all goes well with the launch.

Tell me at what stage in the build were you able to get the licence and registration number? Slight change of plan I am going to have to do a self fit out so this sort of information is necessary. Best of luck and look forward to meeting you on the cut some time.
