We completed a dash to Cornwall (having been to the Ice Hotel the week before) to have a look ‘deck down’. Impressions? She looked like a boat! Pete was salivating over the teak deck, and the additional cost seemed worth it as soon as we saw her. It seemed ages since we saw her, so it was just brilliant. As usual, Pete arrived with a list of questions, which Nick took in his (very long) stride. I guess the thing that struck me the most was that you actually had the sense of going ‘down below’ now the ‘lid’ was on. It contributed to the ‘wow’ factor that we had on this visit. It was all topped off with a great night staying with Hels, a top pub on the edge of Dartmoor, with us getting back home on Saturday. Slightly mad, but certainly worth it.
