– stagnation evasion!
Travelling to Springwood Haven to have the boat's hull blacked with BSS signoff and Archie training on the way.
Archie finds his feet in pubs and clubs, on boats and trains and prepares for life as a boat dog.
A new plan for the weeks ahead and a visit from an engineer but no resolutions.
A final trip up The Nene, a week "off" and the return, via Northampton, to canal world.
An explosive return, a Country Park oasis, a very long lunch, a road train and a tour of Oundle
A classic British Bank Holiday weekend, meeting up in Ely, messing up the Denver crossing and escaping the Middle Levels.
