A head start
The towpath moorings have been filling up during the day, although the boat which is due to be outside Briar Rose hasn't arrived yet.
I've spent most of the day over at the show site, catching up with people and looking at boats. I've even managed to write six of the mini reviews. Andy the photographer can go round those boats tomorrow. Some boats are far from finished: at least one builder has major woodwork going on, and it looks as though they'll be working well into the night. Most have just had cleaning and dressing to do, and there's been a good atmosphere across the site
Tomorrow, the show opens its doors to the paying public.
