Left Sea lift after greasing the prop, changing the Anodes and painting Suzie Too’s bottom, headed off in a force 6 to Newtown River.  Arrived at high tide picked up a buoy, we were charged £16.00 for the overnight stay.  Wind picked up in the afternoon, but had a lovely time swinging on the buoy no other boats in sight, then a First 40.7 ran aground going the wrong way round the red, then tried to pick up a mooring buoy going at 10 knots… very entertaining.  Moving to number 2 buoy as next tide is deeper and touching in the mud when swinging at low tide, must be over a small mound.
