Boat Blog: Happy Launch Day Indigo Dream

Posted by indigodream on 21 May, 2010

Sunday 16th May

Indigo Dream on her fourth birthday - she's not looking too bad is she? 🙂

It is a good day – Indigo Dream was launched on 16th May 2006 in Trowbridge on the Kennet and Avon an unbelievable four years ago.

Our biggest worry when we got her into the water was that we wouldn’t use her enough and she’d just be another pristine but cobwebbed boat sitting in a marina for most of the year.

Well, I can safely say that hasn’t been the case! Our rough calculation is that we’ve cruised almost every english waterway southwest of an imaginary line from Liverpool to London – the troubled Basingstoke being the big exception. That’s around 2500 miles and 1900 locks. We’ve had a great time and Indigo Dream has done exactly what we needed her to – although there are always little tweaks to be done, she has been just perfect for our way of cruising.

So join us, if you will, in a toast to Indigo Dream and many more years of happy cruising…..
