  1. The Trent in flood is a scary place. I pushed up from Torksey to Sawley a couple of yeas back when the boards were amber / red. Progress was so slow below Cromwell.

  2. We were stuck there a couple of Christmas' ago. Spose to put No Problem in Gt Haywood marina. We never made it and had to leave her at Sawley Marina.

    You will enjoy the run along the river once the boards turn green.. having said that it is a nice place to wait with plenty of interest around you.

  3. lucky you went to scouts to learn to build the fire! Photos' look good - hopefully when you are more local we can come and see you. Drive carefully :-) x
