Cruise Notes: Relocation trip to take Kevayling back to Allington Marina where she will be lifted out in order to undergo hull and deck renovation.

A cloudy, overcast day for a run upriver but passed our moorings neighbour (Morwenna) who was also out for a days sailing. Good run allowing the engines to work at high revs on a couple of occasions. Unfortunately the state of the river approaching Allington Lock was appalling with heavy debris and reed mats covering most of the water. Reported to the lock keeper.
