We´ve got a date!

I said we’ve got a date!!!

But it’s complicated, (figures), we always end up being unique, even when we don’t want to be. But there ya go nothing’s ever eezy when it’s got anything to do with our boat, fortunately we’re used to it now, well, sometimes…

So TT is being craned out of this marina on Monday 5th December and craned into Mercia Marina on Tuesday 6th December. Work that out…

In fact, this must be the only boat I can think of that’s come out of the water on one day, only to arrive at the destination point the next day – deliberately. Signed sealed and delivered, with an overnight stop in a motel wagon depot… Why??

Because there was a conflict of interest dates with the lorry. Hence the arrival time has been delayed and they aren’t allowed to drive a wagon carrying a boat in the dark. Which sorta makes sense in an elf and safety way – especially when it’s your boat…

Meanwhile today’s been a nightmare, have you ever tried coordinating two massive cranes, a lorry, and output / input from one marina to another at the same time? Makes the old saying piss up in a brewery sound like a walk in the park…

So tickets for the 6th December “gig” at Mercia are now available from takeytezeyboatjettydotcom. 9am sharp at the venue…

We’ve also hired a grandstand (also to be craned in the day before) and the brass band (also to be craned in the day before). After all a perch in the trumpet is worth two in a trombone…

Anyway back to the seating arrangements, the tickets come in 3 different flavours:
The bottom tier = Standing room only
The middle tier = Sitting room only
The top tier = The penthouse box with cucumber drinks and champagne butties

Right, well I’m off to book a hotel for the 5th Dec, seeing as they won’t let us stay aboard the boat (while it’s staying aboard a lorry overnight). I’m certainly not sleeping in the car. In fact on that particular night I won’t be able to sleep anywhere, neither of us will…
