The coal boat cometh.
This morning, as I was setting up the fishing tackle for a spot of pike fishing, in the distance I heard the distinctive sound of a working boat approaching. It proved to be coal boat Auriga, ex. G.U.C.C.Co. star class, still fulfilling her original purpose.
Topped up the coal store and filled the diesel tank. We really appreciate the service provided, makes winter boating so much more pleasant, knowing that fuel is available.
And the pike fishing? Don't ask, might as well have stayed in bed.
