Dry Docking Penelope

Dry Dock at Newbury
Yesterday I went to Newbury to have our prospective boat surveyed, I arrived at All-Aboard Marine Services at Greenham Lock to find Paul had her in the dock and was already pumping the water out. Peter & Kyra, the owners, had brought Penelope up there over the last couple of days and Richard Burchell the surveyor arrived about 11am and spent a good couple of hours checking the hull thickness and giving the boat a thorough check over, he declared the hull to be in excellent condition and the only real problem he found was a loose propeller which was attended to by Paul the same afternoon. So a price was agreed, a test drive arranged and in just over a week will will be boatowners. 😀
