Due to recent technical/signal problems I've still a huge backlog of pics to sort and only caught up with these today - I'd forgotten how funny it was.
The only way to turn at the end of the canal is to go through the lock and wind on the Thames; these lads had just set up on the pontoon to fish and I had to explain that I needed to use the pontoon to hold MR's nose with the bow rope whilst G pivoted round (OK so we've been watching too much Strictly!)
They didn't seem much impressed with the idea of shifting all their gear - especially when I told them it would happen all over again when NB Beefur came through
We completed our manouevre and then pulled over for brekkie, waiting to pull out behind Beefur once they'd winded
Oxford College Cruisers hire boat(Thank you Maffi) appeared to pull out right in front of them
So Dave climbed on board and they tried a bit of rock and roll
around this point Sue and I realised Beefur was drifting off unattended
Well held Sue!
