With the water pump fitted back on Brown Eye’s engine, I was more than ready to leave Liverpool.
The river traffic going in and out of Liverpool was quite heavy and there was a real mixture of larger boats that I had to avoid. Here are just a few:
The Irish Sea was smooth and flat and there was very little wind, so the engine had to remain on once again, but at least the auto-pilot with its new drive belt was working well and this allowed me to move around the boat without having to worry too much about going off course.
I tried a bit of fishing off the back of Brown Eyes, with no success, but will keep trying.

The water was clear, still and looked inviting and as it promised to be a hot day I was tempted to go for a swim, until I saw these.......
A chilled weekend, before further exploration of the IoM.
