Returning from the cruise, it’s clear Cachalot needs to come out for some re-caulking. The bilge pumps are going off every couple of hours again! We book her in at Larkmans and Steve motors up river for a lift out and a good scrub off.
He spends a couple of days with her out of the water, working with James on caulking and general tidying up of some seams. Before putting her back, she gets a new coat of anti-foul, so looking much more tidy below the waterline again . . . and he motors back to the Tidemill.
