Some steamy pictures

... of Laplander, who joined us on the 'particular significant and historic' moorings after escorting the VIP opening party on Swift with the brief of, in Sean's words 'making a lot of noise' - which they did, with a steam driven siren.

Sean and Dawn provided excellent and entertaining company for much of the weekend. The photos demonstrate one of the many skills required for steam powered navigation. Historic narrow boat owners like people like Sean because they make the rest of us look relatively sane.


  1. Hey, Laplander's a few boats down from Tortoise in Lowsonford as i type - is Chertsey long gone or still south of us? :-)

  2. Ah, long gone; back at Stretton I'm afraid
