Cruise Notes: After 4 weeks back at Allington Marina undergoing a major hull revamp Kevayling has finally been returned to the water and we are taking her back to Chatham. Departed from the marina and passed through Allington Lock only to be confronted by a serious amount of debris and rubbish in the river. There was a requirement to proceed very slowly in order to avoid damage to our freshly painted boat!

Half way to Chatham we picked up a May Day Relay from Dover coastguard regarding a sinking vessel at Strood Pier Rochester. To far away to assist but passed the incident later which by that time was under control.

Arrived safely back at Chatham Marina and put her back in her berth. It's been a long four weeks away.
