Top of Foxton Lock to Foxton Junction.

We moved down through Foxton locks this morning and are now moored at the junction for the weekend. Despite being a bit chilly and a still quite strong winds, it has been a lovely sunny morning trip down through the locks.

I have been wondering how well these boats handle in a strong wind? It must take considerable skill! ATB!

Keith and Jo Lodge said...

Not really down to skill Rusty, when a working boat is fully loaded the wind has very little effect as there is a lot of boat below water level which makes it very stable. I believe we are the only coal boat that runs with sheeting up, and this has very little affect as it is sloping and the wind deflects over it, unlike full length cabins on narrowboats which have more vertical solid sides which catch the wind more.

I see what you mean. Example as in (as a comparison), nb Poppy with straight sides. Interesting.
ATB!
