Test driving Rock n Roll’s new owners!

I’m sure that Ann and Kev Moore won't mind my ‘tongue-in-cheek’ title of today’s blog as it was obviously them who were doing the testing!
Wednesday we welcomed Ann and Kev onto Rock n Roll to spend the day with us cruising from Great Haywood to Fradley Junction.  Geoff joined us to say hello to them and for a cuppa and the photo’s are his pinched from his blog.
Water tank full and we’re ready for the off!
New owners at the tiller - look at those smiles!
Safely in Colwich Lock … no scratches to the new paintwork yet!

Still smiling even in the rain!
This is the first time ever that George has sat in the cratch whilst cruising!
We arrived at Fradley at about 4:30 and managed to get a mooring space just above Shadehouse Lock. The day went very well indeed and we’re please to say that Ann and Kev passed the test!  It was especially gratifying to be told that Rock n Roll is everything they wanted and more; that she handles well and responds quickly.
We rounded off the day with a meal in the Mucky Duck where two rather strange gents put in appearance!
We had a great day; it was a joy to spend it in such good company and we know that when Ann and Kev take over Rock n Roll in March that she will be in good hands.
