Grimsby, Wind & Rain

We had a nice blow here at Grimsby last night, we have no wind instruments so I don't know what the wind speed was but all the boats had a fair rock on. Did my usual and had a bit of a wonder around putting fenders back and adjusting mooring lines, glad I did as there was a Sunbeam 44 which had pushed its fenders out and was rubbing on the pontoon.

 

We've also found a few new leaks because of yesterday's rain, I'm not entirely sure of where the water is coming in though as its in a section where we have a double skin on the hull, the plan is to remove and re-bed every fitting as soon as its dry enough, including all the woodwork. Hopefully I'll have a few days to get everything done before the rain starts again.
