The saga continues ....

As planned Sam arrived on Thursday morning and replaced the prop, which was damaged.  We were soon back in the water and took a trip up to the next winding hole to see if everything was ok.  After about 1/2 mile the knocking started again.  We cruised back to Foxton and met Sam again, he had been in contact with someone who is familiar with the stern gland and he made a few adjustments but it did not solve the problem.  After lots of deliberation it was decided that we need to come back out of the water again and a new stern gland, prop shaft and cutlas bearing fitted depending on delivery and availability this should be done on Monday or Tuesday.

We are back at Foxton for the weekend, I can think of much worse places to be.  It has been a lovely day today, following the rain yesterday.  I went into Market Harborough on the bus to stock up on shopping earlier and had a wander around.
