Yes the new belt fitted and boat is back to 2 alternators, did some washing and hung it out while it was still warm, so we started out at 8.30am after trying to get through to my mum after i got a text to ring her at 3.15am finally got through at 10am and it happened to be a delayed text as i had no signal so all was well, so we continued on towards ellesmere we were desperate for shopping as we had let everything run low,so we arrive at ellesmere basin and for the first time ever we get to moor near tesco, usually we have to moor outside the basin and walk in,so we had a walk around this quaint little village and bought a few things then went for the big shop, after we had done we pulled out of the basin and moored somewhere quieter.
