We've been to see a man about a boat, a new boat, a replacement boat for Caxton.
Yesterday we travelled to Nottinghamshire to see Mel Davis of Mel Davis Boatbuilders about a new boat. We took drawings and thoughts on what we wanted in Caxton's replacement and spent a happy few hours talking boats. Mel is going to price a 65' replica Northwich Trader style boat and we know in a few days what the date of the likely build slot.
Here are a couple of tug style boats waiting to be transported from Mel's yard to be fitted out.
