This old wooden boat, Hesperus, was mentioned in a thread on canalworld forums when Mike went past it on his boat a couple of weeks ago.
last night when I was pottery by there was quite a bit of activity
and she was definitely on the way up. This morning when I headed out for a morning walk she was still floating with the help of a pump.

but then it was time to move on. Maffi took over the tiller and I swanned about.

It took a bit longer than I expected. When I took the lining down there were a few gaps in the insulation already there. The solution was simple - spray foam, especially as I had a tin of the stuff.
Everything was going swimmingly well.
I positioned myself and sprayed away. I was incredibly careful not to get any on me until I suddenly realised I had somehow, heaven knows how, got it stuck in my hair. When such things happen there is only one thing to do.
So I did. I panicked straight into the bathroom with shampoo and water.
It wasn't terribly effective because I couldn't see the spray foamed mass as it was at the back of my head and I wasn't really getting anywhere. I needed help. With visions of shaving my head and wondering if that was such a bad thing, I decided I needed to make an effort to get the stuff out. I levered my neighbour out of his boat to come and assist - I handed him my thinners and a rag and eventually I managed to get it all out. Copious amounts of shampoo followed to get rid of the thinners too.
What a pain.
Anyway. I finished the job without any further ado. I think it went OK.
but I still smell of thinners.
