Up early and away by 08:30, we didn't see another boat on the move until we reached Gailey top lock four miles away.
FL slid into Brick Kiln lock fine, then the throttle cable decided to snap. I was kicking myself as I have been meaning to purchase a just in case spare for ages but never got around to it. The gear cable is identical, so foolish not have a spare on board. Anyway we waited four hours for a RCR engineer to arrive and fit one for us.
