Up early this morning to fill up with water before entering Great Haywood Marina.
threw some stale bread out for the ducks at 10 past 8 and the terns swooped down!
We arrived at the marina just after 9 and spent a couple of hours watching them moving boats in and out of the water.
This is the contraption they use - it's hydraulic, the rear axle rises once the boat is loaded so that the stern is higher than the bow - presumably so that it doesn't slide off when they move off!
about 2pm and John is steering towards the launcher - he must get it dead central between the two guides ..
.. like this ..
