Thanks to Bert Holster we have a report in from across the pond. Wait, that’s an English thing.. Not sure what the Netherlandishsaying is. Dutchish? I love stories from around the globe. Somehow we are all connected in a wonderful shared way! If you wonder where Gorinchem is. I have this map..
Take it away Bert… PLEASE.
Yes also here in the Netherlands we are having fun in reading Woody Boater from time to time !! So to give a sign of life about wooden boating in this part of the world, a little message from me. Most of the Dutchies lift their pleasure boats out of the water before end of October.
So did I today and now its time to start thinking about the winter workjobs to do and I hope it will not stay at thinking about it.
Anyway it will start with cleaning the tarpaulin because again I waited too long to bring the boat inside in this already humid period of the year ! Caused by false hope for that last time opportunity combined with a nice sunny day to go for a last ride on the water this year ?
