Crick Show - day 1
It's been a busy day. I was on the show site by 8.30, and after meeting Andy, the photographer, and Nick, the editor, we set off looking at boats. We managed to get a few done before the gates opened and the paying public arrived. In total, we're up to sixteen boats looked at for the mini reviews, so just another four to do tomorrow. This afternoon, some of the Canal Boat crew came back to Briar Rose for tea. It was our first chance to sit down, and it was good to have a relax and a chat.
The publication date for the July issue of the magazine has been brought forward especially for the Crick show. It contains my boat test of Donald No 9, and a feature about a wide beam boat that's being exported to America.
