The Waterways Wanderings of Narrowboat “Just Heaven”

Sneak preview

Bob called to say the boat would be ready today. So we drove up to Fenny Compton, but when we got there it still wasn’t quite ready!

There were various odd little things that still needed to be done,but we agreed to go out for a few days and then return back to the boatyard.

The change is quite dramatic, gone is the red and dark blue boat to be replaced with a green/cream and bright blue boat.

Sneak preview below:


A three day chug up to Newbold and back in glorious weather, we have now left the boat at Fenny again until it’s completed.

Yet more waiting

We are now getting rather frustrated at how long the paint job is taking. Each time I ring Bob he has another reason (excuse) why it’s not finished yet.

It is now about 2 and a half months and it could be another week before it’s ready. Obviously we dont want a ‘rush job’, but this is going on too long.


Still waiting

We delivered the boat to Bob Mitchell at Fenny Compton on 24th March. He was due to start the paint job on 27th. We expected it to take about 3 weeks. But unfortunately the job for the boat in the dry dock before ours overran by 2-3 weeks. So now we dont expect ours to be ready until about 20th of May.

This is the longest we have ever gone without some time on board. Definitely getting withdrawal symptoms!


Repaint date set!

We started the day at nine o’clock with a wonderful cooked breakfast before setting off to meet Bob at 11:30am.

The repaint date has been set for March 27th and colours have been agreed, apparently we were the most organised cutomers he’d ever had! We left Bob and went for a walk round the extremely pleasant town of Southam, dipping in and out of charity shops and discount stores before setting back to the boat for lunch. The rest of the day was relaxed and spent playing on our computers in front of the fire, a couple of card games and Rumikub. Going home tomorrow.

Boat jumble

Just here for a couple of nights, mainly to go to see Bob Mitchell about the repaint.
We have grandson Josh with us. On the way here we called in at the West Midlands boat jumble at Throckmorton airfield. We bought some rope and a new rear fender. The weather today has been really good, bright and sunny, such a change from recently.

Colour Choices

The boat is booked in for a repaint in March, so we have had to really think hard about the colours.

We have finally narrowed down the colour choice for the repaint to the two below. We would really welcome your input into the decision making process!

Just a short chug down to Banbury, going back tomorrow.

The floods seem to have gone down a bit, though there is still a lot of water rushing down the by-washes. We arrived here about 3 o’clock and popped into Castle Quay for a bit of shopping. Back to Cropredy tomorrow.


Back again

The ¬†weather was appalling as we drove to Stourport, with the spray on the M40 making for very poor visibility. Lunch was served soon after we arrived at Andrew & Shiela’s. We worked off the lunch by taking Dylan the dog for a walk as the rain had stopped. The evening was spent nattering, consuming wine and G&T’s and playing cards. A quick ¬†toast at midnight then off to bed.

This morning Andrew & Wendy Dyke drove over from Evesham and we all had lunch together some more nattering, then we drove back to Cropredy.

Still here

The plan was to set off this morning for Braunston to meet friends Andrew & Sheila on NB ‘Uncle Mort’ for New Year’s Eve. Unfortunately the weather has taken control of things. When we awoke it was blowing a gale and raining hard. The forecast for the next few days is pretty dire. A flurry of texts and emails between us and Andrew confirmed that it wasnt worth attempting the trip to Braunston, so we agreed to drive to their flat in Stouport tomorrow and spend New Year’s Eve there. Today was spent mooching round the shops in Banbury to avoid the rain.


Cropredy Marina

After a ‘Champagne Afternoon Tea’ at Thornbury Castle to celebrate a friends 60th birthday we drove to Cropredy, lit the fire, had a glass of wine and went to bed.
