In Stone – For Now!

Morning B’Oatcakers!

We promised some news – at last, we have a date for the essential engine work after which we are on our travels!  We are booked in at the legendary Canal Cruising from 4th July for a few days so with a following wind in July and August we will be able to visit B’Oatcake regular stops such as Westport Lake, Great Haywood, The Bet 365 (Blackpool at home on Saturday 6th August is the first match for us) and of course Stone.

We’ve also been invited to a couple of festivals so once those are confirmed we’ll let you know.

You may have spotted us (well, Gina mostly!) prepping a panel on the trading side of the boat.  If you follow us on Insta (theoatcakeboat) you can see what’s been going on.  The plan is to rename the boat the next time she is out of the water (the boat, not Gina…) as apparently, it is bad luck to rename a boat while it’s afloat!

Business-wise, it’s still a case of finding our feet – and we are so grateful to everyone who has supported us this far.  It really does mean the world to us that we have so many people who are taking an interest in what we are doing and we really do appreciate every message of support and of course every purchase from the boat, from a cuppa to a double oatcake with every filling!

This weekend – Saturday 25th June and Sunday 26th June – we are based in Stone again, right behind Marks & Spencers and just a few yards below Star Lock.  When we are open, we have the HUGE A-board on the grass verge, so you can’t really miss us!

The What 3 Words for this spot is outlooks.cheerily.envoy which will narrow it down to the nearest metre 😉

So see you in Stone hopefully this weekend or next – and we will keep posting in Facebook and Insta too.

Take care, and lots of love, 

Toby & Gina
