I spent all weekend cleaning the boat, ready to to move on next weekend. Firstly, I took everything off to put through the dishwasher and washing machine at home. This gave me an empty canvas to work with. Having sat in its winter mooring for the last two years, Carpe Diem was looking a little neglected and the condensation has worked its magic, leaving black spots everywhere! Emily came and helped me on Saturday (she is a lovely young lady) and it never seems quite so bad when there is two of you at it. So we got stuck in cleaning out every nook and cranny. However, any of you that knows anything about boats, knows that this involves getting into positions that I didn't think were possible, stretching to the point of breaking and climbing over tables, chart tables etc. Boy, do I ache today!! It has to be better than any work out that you pay a fortune for!! Of Course Emily, being young, took it all in her stride and is bouncing around today as though we did nothing!
