Nancy Belle

On Tuesday Nancy Belle completed her first Tamar River trip of the season venturing just upriver of Morwellham Quay before returning to Cotehele Quay. There was even an international presence with two Americans onboard. The trip was judged as a success with only a few mutterings that maybe cushions could be provided to make her hard bench seats a bit more comfortable.

There is also a rumour going around the boat shed that Nancy Belle is getting a new engine, perhaps even before her next trip!

Other snippets.

The crew is waiting for a couple of weeks, or even days of dry weather for the painting of Shamrock's hull, bulwarks and tabernacles ready for the 40th anniversary celebrations of her arriving at Cotehele.

A Get Knotted course is in development and once perfected will be opened up for public participation.

Somebody got fed up with the state of Shamrock's keep off notice and decided to do something about it.

Out with the old.
In with the new.
