Today we launch the boat, to find that it works with hardly any problems at all. This involves unwrapping it from its Christo-like winter wrapping and driving it down to the water.
I unwrap the boat and Irma coils the ropes. I photograph the coiled ropes and Mika arrives with a trailer to take the boat to the water.
We discover that the battery has gone flat over the winter (which it should not have done). Mika finds a replacement and all seems well. The pump does not work which we suspect means that the fuse has blown.
The boat does work though, and off we go for our first journey of the summer.
