No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Seen Everything Now.

Sunday 27th May 2012
Atherstone to Brinklow.
19 Miles, 1 Lock and 1 Moveable Bridge.

Have a good look at this Cabin Cruiser, notice anything strange, it's at Sutton Stop where the Oxford Canal meets the Coventry Canal, both narrow canals, however, in my estimation this boat is about 8 feet 6 inches wide and it's not going far, apparently he had tried to go into the lock and found he had a problem, as we left he was pulling it around the corner and no doubt planning his next move.

How it got there isn't clear, but what is clear is that this man is new to the world of canals.

We are now moored at Brinklow having made a 6.15 start, in this heat we're trying to start early and finish early, tomorrow we hope to get to Braunston.

I think his next move is to get his money back from whoever sold him that possibly on the Ashby!!??

Oh dear!
