What's been happening lately
The fit-out by John Birkin is coming along well. The plan is that shown on the "Fit-Out" page and it is a marvelous tribute to John that he has managed to fit everything in to such a small space. We've already had a couple of weeks boating on Hasty whilst the work has progressed and the plan is to get her completed before the end of the year ready for a busy 2013
October 15th 2012. The boiler passed its annual test. After a bit of buggering about with the blow off valves John Glaze managed to her to hold 150psi without a problem so it's good for another 14 months. Laplander had her test at the same time and place (Swan Lane Wharf) and also passed.
Richard Thomas has placed a write up about Hasty on his website www.steamershistorical.co.uk giving details of the boat and he has also posted a picture of the enamel GJCCo Tunnel Tug Sign that Paul Hunter found for me on eBay
