On Friday night Maffi's hot water tank burst, and as there are no isolator switches along the system, he is now living on his boat without any water at all. To top it off, he has suffered some loss of vision in one eye and has a hospital appointment tomorrow to sort it out. I am sure you can picture the scene: One eyed maffi with blurred vision trying to fill up a water container from a towpath tap and then poor that into his kettle..... His loo also uses water to flush, so even using that can be a bit interesting. He tells me he has two containers with different coloured lids, one is for drinking water, and the other is not... I wish I could remember which was which.
So, his boat is still under warranty - hurrah you think, but there is no sign of it being fixed YET. The event happened on a Friday evening and typically people don't work at the weekends. The boatyard were on the end of the phone on Saturday morning, and as yet there is no news. I wonder how long it will go on for? The manager did mention he would be coming down himself to fix it.. all the way from Mirfield... hmmmmm.
