Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 27th October, 2016)
You see a lot of the narrow boats who only open one gate, thats OK if you go into the lock straight on but most of them dont like this one and end up bumping along the gate which causes damage.
I was usually the gate opener, & I never, ever, relied on 1 gate. It was always both. Good photo though, thank you. We ascended the Flight, lovely day.
In the original pick the skipper is in view ,so also is another boat in the lock. Also Mick as boats steers from the stern the skipper entered the lock with ease.
