The repairs are beginning!

Craft Insure, who are the insurance company who I have my Narrowboat insurance with have given me the go ahead to replace the smashed windows and repair the window frame.

Apparently they are not sure I should be claiming for new carpet and bedding, I would be interested what you all think? I had two windows smashed on top of the bed and over the bedroom carpet. The glass shattered into thousands of tiny pieces which I have tried to hover up, but if course, I keep finding tiny shades of glass in the carpet and it's even more difficult to hover a duvet. Personally I don't like the idea of getting cut by a bit of glass in bed or when I step out in bare feet in the morning!

What do you all think?

It seems to me like they are trying to back track on paying out for the claim which is really annoying as I thought they were a good company. We will have to see, watch this space.

I am hoping to start cruising again on the 14th February (as long as the Thames is not on Red boards) when the lock onto the Thames has hopefully been re-opened. I am looking forward to reaching Lower Heyford for a pint in the Bell Inn!

I think that it is possible to clean up all the shards of glass.
Maybe you should use a cleaning service who can do a really good job of this and then you charge it to the insurance
