... but we then had two ARCTIC CAVALIER's as her sister kept her name after sale!

HW 09.15 tomorrow, what time do you think she will be on the move?

I suspect the old Cavalaier wasn't still UK registered at that time :)

Plan is for between 7am and 10am - however there was a hitch this morning as due to spring tides the tidal barrier was lowered and didn't rise until nearly an hour after high water. Apparently it will be lowered in the morning too, so I suspect it will be nearer 10am when they pass through the bridges. It may be held in the river awaiting for a while I suspect.

Well she made it and I also got home before Patrick ;) Mind you I cheated and stayed on the 'into the sun' side of the river! Here's the best of the bunch, anyway.

The reason was after the photos were taken I was boxed in with the crazy parking that took 10 minutes, then I went off to the Humber bridge market :)

Anyway, photos here at last. Taken long distance from almost Alex dock for the first few.
