Interesting Kath. Probably the same one that left a top paddle up at Ravens this morning and emptied the pound, or was it a careless boater? The bottom gates leak so badly.

Berkhampsted also has an occasional 'bore' that travels along the canal ripping out mooring pins it's so strong. Only inches high, it's quite strange. It just lifts the boat up and drops it down again in the same place. That could account for all the other boats suffering. No idea what causes it, but we have seen it twice, the first time it pulled out our pins, luckily it was daytime and we were with the boat.
