We passed two sunken boats, one was still tied to the bank but the second had broken up and was across the canal Fl felt its top side against her base plate. Sue rang C&RT to tell them about the hazard to navigation. To the right, we passed Furness Vale Marina a string of moorings with moored boats sticking stem or stern at the passing craft.
The final stop of the day was Bugsworth Basin and my concerns about there not being enough room for us were completely unfounded as we were the only boat there. We arranged to meet Alan and Sue (Tracey's mum & dad) at the Navigation Inn where we enjoyed a meal. Afterwards, we didn't disgrace ourselves at the quiz coming in joint second with 20/30.
