Sad to relate that after 17 years loyal service on 4 of our boats our Westie, Bosun, swallowed the anchor yesterday while we were at Goring. The local vets were very kind and will miss him greatly but we both feel so pleased that we were able to call time whilst on the river, on a lovely summers day and in such a peaceful place. Seems so strange not to have to worry about closing the transom gate .......
