I came up to Briar Rose last night after work. The 15 miles of 50mph on the M1 was even more frustrating than usual, as a couple of sections were down to one lane. I got here just before midnight, on a cold, clear night. The car said it was just a couple of degrees above freezing, and the marina was illuminated by the moon.
First priority was to get the fire going, and I also moved the oil filled radiator into the cabin and put the kettle on to fill a couple of hot water bottles. I stayed up for about an hour, to make sure the fire was going enough to stay in all night.
By this morning, the fire was still going, and boat was much warmer. I'll be off further north in a few minutes, for a boat test.
