I mentioned last week that 'The Friends of NB Emerald' (as I'll dub them) have now got the boat to Tipton, and it awaits the start of repairs. He's sent some photos, and he asked me to acknowledge another sponsor: International, who have kindly donated up to £1,000 worth of their boat paints for the restoration.
In the end Emerald managed the trip under its own power. I can empathise with this, because when Granny had her cabin diesel leak earlier this year, she worked fine as a cruising boat. It was only when you went inside that you were faced with the distress (and you could only smell it). As you can see, the distress on Emerald - pictured here at the top of the Wolverhampton flight - is far more, well, distressing.
I must admit I'm astonished at what they've already achieved in commitments and support. Well done, Dave!
