A  nice tidy 20 that has just gone back into the water on the Trent & Mersey after a good bottom clean and re-paint. An interior re-fit is planned this winter.

Not a lot o work to be done other than to re-fit inside to my taste. Moored at Kings Lock on the Trent and Mersey, Middlewich, we have done some cruises together but , like most 20's I think, Hobbit likes to go where she wants to go so am looking at fitting a Ruddersafe to stabilise the directional flow at low speeds. Some of the Norman owners on the Forum have given some good tips. Also I need to have the prop on the Honda 7.5 brought back to shape after a particularly aggressive wheelie bin got in my way ! Fortunately I have a mate who re builds props. Most of the pics were taken before I actually parted with any folding stuff, hence the "For Sale" stickers all over.
De-fouled and re-painted in July2011 at least I don't need to worry  about that for a couple of seasons.
