  1. Hi Graham & Jill,

    Yep, missed that one out but the ice is already on its way. Reason why I didn't mention it is because some people who live in bricks n mortar seem to think we get cold when we're iced in on a boat – not so, it's even cosier than a house..

    Darn it, missed the S for sun out tho. Much more important that! :-)We can use the engine & get out there!

    Ahh, hope we get a good warm summer this year 🙂
