Back in the water again
Yesterday, the Luxor slipped smoothly down the ramps and back where it belongs - in the water. After a quick check to make sure there were no pin prick leaks after all the welding, Koos manoeuvred neatly round the harbour and back into position. We are all rather pleased with the week's efforts..after being the ugly duckling of the harbour and largely ignored by visitors, the tourists were busily snapping as the Luxor sported a newly shining and blackened hull, a beautiful red strip and a gleaming engine room (thanks to Mo, Craig and a crew of press-ganged friends for this last contribution!) There's still lots to do, but it's been in need of a major makeover for quite a while. In two weeks time, it's the Vereeniging's turn. On Thursday, however, I am off to Spain for five days, so will be out of touch for a week, so keep well one and all. Lots of love from a wonderfully sunny and warm Rotterdam.
