Norbury Wharf, Starcross' home mooring
I don't completely "winterise" Starcross, although I do take certain precautions to prevent damage to the engine and water system over the colder months. Instead I like to pay a visit to Norbury Junction every few weeks and take her out for a short trip to give the engine a bit of use and charge up the batteries.
Until now I've had to do this at weekends, which has sometimes meant that I haven't been able to go as often as I would have liked, but now I'm a free (retired) man I shall be going up tomorrow for a few midweek days afloat.
There are a few little jobs to do, a few supplies to buy and there will be time for a little trip up (or down) the Shroppie, as the mood takes me.
