Season's Greetings! Hope everyone's having fun. Here aboard Zen Again in St Katharine Docks we're keeping warm - just! It's 3C outside and raining. Below it is a cosy 17C.
|Saloon with new cushions and Christmas decorations|
We're unsure how old the previous cushions were - we suspect at least 15 years. The forepeak cushions were disposed of in 2013 when we were in SE Asia. The quarter berth cushions went last year. The former weren't being used and the mould was becoming hard to control back then in the humid heat. The latter are unnecessary since the quarter berth is now a stowage area not a berth.
The project started in the autumn when we began measuring up for new forepeak cushions. We knew we were soon going to be moving back aboard. Sleeping in the two saloon settee berths was fine at sea but not when living aboard in a marina.

We had the board cut to size when in Cowes this year. The two forepeak cushions were ordered in October and delivered on time in November. It was great to have a nice comfy bed again!
