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.

A Very Slow Weekend.

Monday 26th March 2012.

Friday and Sunday I was at Braunston Marina for the BCBM weekend, the idea is to give people who are considering buying a share in a boat the opportunity to look around various boats and talk to other sharers, however there weren't many people around despite the warm sunny weather.

Although the famous Shadow drew a small crowd.

Raymond moored under the canopy in the Marina.

Roger, Diana and Richard, Three of the volunteers who help keep things going.

I did get to meet a couple of other bloggers, on Friday it was Sue and Vic on No Problem and Sunday I bumped into Maffi and his dog Molly, not much time for chatting but maybe next time.

As Raymond is an unpowered Butty when the show finished we needed a tow to our mooring at the other end of the Marina, we were lucky enough to find a willing boat crew from nb Rowington, we breasted up (tied side by side) and off we went, the steerer of Rowington was very good even reversing right back to our mooring spot.

I couldn't go this year as I was at work all weekend. Glad Shadow was attracting the hordes - all we need is for some of them to buy a share!
