Just got the curry going on New Years eve when I heard a boat passing about 7pm and then a knock on the roof. It was Andrew on a delayed start to a winter four counties cruise.
I felt bad leaving him to the final two locks of what must have been a frustrating day so I nipped out and helped him though Hunts and Keepers.
Always good to meet Andrew and I think this is three times at New Year we have met. Not sure I'd take on the four counties in the middle of winter but I guess that was makes a real boater.
Blooming gates...stay shut!
