Apparently the man's body surfaced near his boat on Friday afternoon. It was spotted by poor Glenda who, by virtue of being the neighbouring boat, has since had to deal with visits by police, BW, undertakers, and distraught relatives. I think she'll be glad when she finishes our cratch cover and she can move off. I did offer to move Herbie to another spot but she declined.
That's twice in recent weeks that we have been close to bodies in the canal. I sincerely hope it's a coincidence that won't be repeated further.
