Questions, questions, questions

Now it is established that the Boat For My Potplants is the one for me, I have to turn my attention to TWO main tasks;

1) Getting it here (from St Neots to Wivenhoe)

2) Getting a mooring for it (preferably along the quay)

To get the boat here, it can either come by road, or by water. If by road, I need a vehicle with a trailer - or I could hire the services of a specialist company - at goodness knows what cost.

If coming by water, I need to research the waterways and find out the route. My good (?) friends Mike, Paul and Jay have kindly suggested that we should navigate our way to the Thames, and then out round the Essex coast. On their last message to me, they asked me to organise the life jackets. Thanks guys! I'll think about it.

I'll also think about the mooring.

Questions, questions, questions. All will be answerd in due course. Watch this space.


  1. Why has no one else commented?

    I am the first, a true pioneer, forging into the unknown.

    I've broken the ice and hope the flood will now start.

    Good luck Neil. If you need a crew you know who to ask.


  2. Well, I thought I had posted a comment, but I think what I actually did was send Neil an e-mail. Why would I do that?
    Here's what I said more or less.
    I think he should sail his boat down the river while we fire cannon balls at it. Now That's What I Call Entertainment!"

  3. I think a better name for this saga is "Water Blogged"
