Back to front stunt driving

Yep, continuing the backwards cruise with two backwards crew, now where was I..? Oh yes, starting to turn in the fake “winding hole” that isn’t really a winding hole at all – but hey it works…

Headed for a field…?

Front end IN the field…?

Not really, it’s thick fine reeds, just great for sinking your bow into, before several wheels are deployed beneath the boat and whisk you through the crops instead. It’s much quicker than going down the canal too…

I carried on walking down the towpath because you can just see the next lock in the distance, yep some of them come thick and fast round here…

Don’t think this would’ve been possible in such a strong gusty breeze without a bow thruster. However it wasn’t used when the bow was in the field – not a good idea…
