First job of the morning was to check down the weed hatch; yesterday the tiller had been shaking far too much.  It turned out there were too bits of rope round the prop shaft - looking suspiciously like the sort that people use for their dangly side fenders.

The short trip back to the marina was uneventful, and I managed a smooth spin into our berth.

The boat test was in Braunston, a drive of about 40 minutes mostly up the A5.  For a change, we decided to use the locks as the backdrop for the photos.

The boat being tested was short enough that we could go up two locks, turn, and come back down again.  What had started as a misty morning turned into a sunny day just in time.

1 mile, 0 locks.  (2 miles, 0 locks)
