Nearly time to call a halt...

I will soon be calling a halt to the Caxton blog.  Our new boat Yarwood will be launched on Saturday next (21/01/12) and we hope/aim to complete our transfer from Caxton to the new quarters by Monday 23rd at the latest.  Thereafter, depending on the ICE conditions, we will head into Birmingham until such time as the stoppages allow us to escape south to Gayton and the road to the Fens.

She's looking like one beautiful boat !

This could mean that you'll have only one entry in the Top Thirty boating websites!

All the best with Yarwood.

Hi Halfie
I mustn't be greedy, one blog in the top thirty is good enough for me.

I'm going to buy the bottle of beer today though it will be poured rather than smashed me thinks.

Hello Anon
If you mean Yarwood, I agree and can't wait to see her in the right environment, water.

I've been following the Yarwood blog and can't wait to see her on the cut.
Let me know when you're in the south northants area with her.

The best of luck

Good Luck with the transfer. Yarwood looks fantastic. Doesn't seem that long ago that you were launching Caxton. How time flies. All best wishes to you both for life aboard your new home. Regards, Pav.

Hello Lesley, Yes I've always kept up with your blog and do enjoy following what you and Joe are getting up to. Cathy and I would love to see you before you set off on your maiden voyage on Yarwood, however i'm having my tonsils out tomorrow and will be out of action for at least a couple of weeks. Hopefully we can catch up again when you are back this way. Take care both. Regards, Pav.
