That's a weird way fishing
They want to get some work done on the tow path side.
Talking of tw paths - I have always wanted to know how they managed in the days when all the barges were horse drawn. If the there is only a path on one side presumably the horses would be going in different directions up and down on the same path. How did they manage to stop the tow ropes from snagging as they crossed. Were there regulations "rules of the road"etc for these circumstances or even when one barge wanted to go past another, Anyone know?
Working in that environment and getting paid to do it!, not a bad gig!
