We can go boating on the Thames
Daisy G has had her boat safety scheme inspection and passed successfully, so we can go boating on the Thames now. The BSS is primarily about fire safety for inland waters, so not too much of a problem as I don't have a fixed gas system. I don't know when we will go on the river, but likely in August or September. I will need a licence for when we are on it, but that can be purchased from a lock keeper. I will leave all sailing rig at home, I couldn't face raising and lowering masts for all the bridges. We are close to Lechlade, where there is a good launching slipway and plenty of trailer parking. It will be quite a different experience.
