Getting ready for a shake-down

We have been preparing Yarwood for a 'shake-down' cruise early this coming week.  This will the time when we find any bits and pieces that need 'snagging' (putting right) before we up stumps, pull pins and are off again on our aimless wanderings.   We have run all the appliances on board so we know that the washing machine, the tumble dryer and the dishwasher are up to scratch and last night being a brave techno bunny I set up and used the microwave!  Who knows, I could be doing the telly next at this rate...

Joe has found and repaired a leaky fuel filter on the engine; well we hope he has repaired it?
We are having a bit of fun working out the idiosyncrasy's of the stoves and how to keep them running all night but that will come and in the meantime we wake up to a chilly boat but  simply reach for the central heating button..
