All roped together

 To ease our progress down the Stockton lock flight we roped Caxton and Matilda Rose together leaving Joe to helm both boats through the locks while Graham was freed up to lend a hand operating the locks with Jill and me.

This successful operation will be repeated on Monday morning when we go up the Hatton flight... whether it will be Joe or Graham at the helm is yet to be decided though...

I see you're dropping hints about doing Hatton again. I'm already booked to do the Wolverhampton 21 with No Problem on Monday but if you're a day late (like last time !!!) I can give you a hand on Tuesday.

Hi Paul
Slight change of plan, Wednesday for the Hatton because we are replacing our battery bank on Tuesday. The batteries have been failing and Joe has found a local supplier in Warwick who will order the batteries in for Tuesday morning.
Thanks for the offer though...
