To "lads" started early and were jumping the lock by lunchtime. At least one fell in around 1am and there was shouting and clapping going on all night!
Early Sunday morning Tom and Pete rescued a Unicorn (at great personal danger to themselves). There seemed to be no-one aboard so they tied her up on our side of the lock to keep her safe. The owner came back at some time during the day but never bothered to thank anyone - just disappeared with his/her boat. There's gratitude. Reminds me of the time we rescued a boat in front of us several times and eventually used one of our own pins to keep it safe. We left a note with the pin, but next mooring the boat was gone, along with our pin!
