No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Friday, 9th September 2011.
Gnosall to Wheaton Aston.
5 Miles.

Short journey today in nice sunshine.

Entering Cowley Tunnel.

When we arrived at Wheaton Aston a boat was moored on Turners fuel Wharf  filling up so we moored opposite on the Visitor moorings, we needed bread and milk so I walked to the Spar shop in the Village.

After lunch, about 1.30 we moved over to Turners and filled up, the Red Diesel was 71.9p Ltr base price, this was good news as we had passed Norbury Wharf yesterday and the price there was 73.9p. we then shuffled back across to our original mooring.

However when we walked over to the Hartley Arms this evening we noticed the price had gone up 1p to 72.9p, Friday afternoon inflation.

The fuel consumption of No Direction since we filled up here in August has been 1.54 Ltrs per hour, we will measure it again after we have fitted our new Crowther propeller.
