Much colder today than yesterday. There was a cold wind blowing along tne Oxford summit. It was slow progress down the Napton flight. We were following a couple on a hire boat who insisted on using a rope in each lock. We told tnem it wasn’t necessary, but he said that it gives him ‘more control’.
On reaching Braunston I went round to the marine engineers workshop. They drilled a hole in our backplate and made up an internal bar and a threaded bolt to hold it in place. So tne stove now passes tne BSS requirements.
