End of entrapment in sight!
New lock gates have arrived by barge and lie waiting their installation at Stanstead Abbots. I spoke to the engineer in charge of the lock repairs today and he reckons the lock should be open by next weekend. When we head for "home" will then be at our discretion. I've just put in place our new Ecofan. This amazing device made in Canada sits on top of the heating stove and generates its own elecricity to run its own motor to drive the fan, which distributes the warm air better throughout the boat. Not quite sure how it generates the elctricity but its something to do with temperature differences in its body. Anyway it works a treat and is virtually silent.
