Whats Happening ?

Saturday July 17th

Alistair and Adrian set about lifting Nanky Poo out of the lock chamber and resting her on the wharf side. 39 Nanky Poo flying

Once Alistair is happy with the position of the lifting strops he easily and gently raises the boat out of the wate and then carries her over to where she is going to be propped up. .

Trevor Barry and Adrian set about fitting the balance beams to the top of the gates.  Whilst Barry does some final shaving of joints Alistair and his co-driver, Daisy, has a short break!  

Neil Worth arrives and records the whole process on his camera.  After several attempts the beams finally slip into position and are then permanently fixed in place.
