Hi fellow boaters, I haven't posted for a while having had probably the worst 9 month of my life with both of my adult children my Brother and my Dad being ill. Anyway life goes on and I have managed to have a couple of very pleasant weekends away on Escape with my wife Jinny, we don't go far but its is a great way to get away from what feels like the drudgery of the weekly grind at work and home, without risking losing a deposit, having to get on a plane or drive for hours.
I'm new to this forum and I really want to find some special bits for my boat. The gentleman who sold me the boat unfortunately done away with a couple of bits which i would love to replace. this includes the sides that make the cofffee table and double bed complete. There is now a fridge in place where one of the sides use to be but it is short enough to fit under the coffee table points. If anyone can advise me then this would be fab!
Best Jacqui x

Thankfully the air cooled engine can be neglected a…Continue
on the whole I think its been a very good summer for boating, personally I havent been out on the canal / river as much as I would have liked due to pressing domestic issues. The first year with 'Escape' has been very much about getting to know the boat, making small improvements and planning larger improvement projects over the winter. So the first week of October Escape will be dry docked at Lower Heyford for a hull survey and re blacking, new anodes etc. I admit to being a little nervous…Continue
