Jan got really annoyed with the boater in the photo below. He was racing around the junction and his wake almost knocked her off her feet twice! Apparently the “ice maiden” stare from the side hatch was enough to cease and desist.
This morning we slipped the mooring and moved off to the water point for a top up. Then it was a matter of doing locks. A routine was quickly developed. Along the way we passed two bloggers. The first was nb Lois Jane (the Pen Boat) with Debbie waving from the window. The second was nb Chuffed. There was only time for a brief conversation with Debby as we needed to catch up with Jaq who was forging ahead.
The Jules Fuel Boats were moored below Grove Lock. Jaq decided she want to reverse back for fuel whilst we continued on to look for a mooring.
We found a suitable mooring about a kilometre later and had just finished mooring (I was preparing to walk to Tesco in Leighton Buzzard) when there was a call from Jaq “Help, I have something large around the prop and rudder!” I walked back to find her being towed to the bank by an obliging passing boater.
I have to say this is the first time I have removed a cratch cover via the weed hatch. If anyone needs a cratch cover they should contact Jaq. It might be useful if they own, or have access to; a sewing machine.
