Better with two

Boated all day today with Renfrew. Brilliant. Now below lock 56 and about to have another well earned beer. The first was at the Riser as we passed through, well, you have to don't you. The Marsworth flight was particularly good. We breasted the boats up and Pete took them both up while Jim and Irene worked the locks and I set ahead. There's nothing like taking a pair of Grand Union boats through Grand Union locks. And a hello to the blog reading CRT employee and boat fan who we met at the Riser!

  1. That shared locking experience must have been good. As you say, the right boats in the right place, and enough people knowing what to do when, and doing it without fuss and shouting.
    There is a special pleasure in working efficiently and quickly, relying on each other in a group.
