What’s that you say Skip, there’s a storm on the way? We chose an open mooring spot away from any overhanging trees. After nailing the boat firmly to the towpath, battening down the hatches and lighting the squirrel we were ready to sit it out. The Life-ring was taken off the roof and stowed away so that we didn’t lose it. After all that, the rain and wind wasn’t too bad overnight, but we did enjoy a bit of boat rocking, but not too much!
