Up on the cabin top they went and remained there for the trip, but when we got to New Haw lock, 15 mins away, they requested to go further, as long as they had time to go to the local shop to get more alcohol, while I went through the lock. Not much good as a crew then, but they did supply the booze.
I cruised past the Boat Club and had a few ribald comments from the male members, before arriving at The Anchor in 30mins time, where the girls happily jumped ship, but not before dishing out kisses of thanks before they left.
I always knew that ‘Stronghold’ was an attractive boat, but never realised that she was such a powerful pulling machine!
