Norfolk Broads Cruise

So here is my post on the first trip away with Tardis. The blog has been a bit thin on the ground recently but only because I have been so busy doing things on the boat and getting ready to go away that its had to be put on the back burner! Anyway included is a summery of our trip.

Mast & Boom crutch

In continuing preparations for the Norfolk Broads trip I decided a boom/mast crutch would be invaluable for lowering the mast  to navigate under bridges.Unfortunatly, this has proved to be difficult to make for a  hartley boat, partly due to my shoddy woodworking skills but also because the clean lines of the deck provided very few options to support the legs of a boom crutch. However I think I have finally found a solution.
