Hello readers, what has happened on Narwhal since I last wrote about our deliveries and winch servicing? Well the deliveries have kept coming and the winch has still resisted being fixed. The toilet purchased from a stranger has been fitted (check out Narwhal's last update if that sounds a bit bizarre). I have spent quite a lot of time with my head in the bilge, this seems to be turning into my favourite pass time. I have tried out some rust treatments and fitted said new toilet. So far it has passed the 'number ones' test, fingers crossed that the 'number 2s' test will go smoothly and cleanly. Excitingly Narwhal has also received some new toys; a four meter rib, some kayaks, a BBQ and a projection screen. Ostensibly the big screen is for watching the films that we take of the beautiful wildernesses that Narwhal will visit, but just to be sure it is working I have tested it extensively with Game of Thrones. Getting the rib, christened 'Baby Narwhal' has meant that there is now effectively a whole new boat to fit out, cue an expansion of the jobs list. I'm glad this one is a little bit smaller and easier than big Narwhal. Experimenting with lifting systems for launching and recovering means that it can now be launched fairly easily by two people. I am looking forward to taking it out for a spin. Talking of testing, it must be about time to test the BBQ...
