We are sailing...........

 We had a great days sailing out along the Orwell River and past Harwich and Felixstowe docks.  It was the first real opportunity we have had to test out all the refurbishments, replacements and repairs we have done over the past few months and I'm pleased to report most of that work has been successful.

The tick-over of the engine seems to be a little slow, which caused the engine to stall just as we entered the Ipswich lock on our return to our marina berth.  Luckily we were almost at a standstill when it cut out, so we were able to secure Brown Eyes alongside before anything could get damaged.

There is still plenty of work left to do, but at least we can take her out sailing now.......
