In the drink time

Wading around scraping down pontoons last week was made much more palatable than would normally be the case by the temperature of the water - the river is like a warm bath at the moment.  That makes it an opportune time to check and then test the flotation in our boats.  The forecast for tomorrow (Monday) afternoon is cool and very windy so we may only get to do the first of these tasks.  When Hans turned turtle in one of the Grebes a couple of weeks ago the buoyancy bags shot straight out from under the seats, hindering, rather than helping, the situation, so it is something that needs to be done.
