If you are going to sink, it's best being in Carls neck of the woods. He has lots of experience!

If it is Hillmorton then I am happy to nip up there but Boatbot's profile says Leighton Buzzard, which is a bit out of range, before the weekend.

According to the profile it says boatbot is in Leighton Buzzard so a good guess would be the Grand Union? What I'd like to know is how/why you think/know the boat is sinking if you are out of the country? Did someone contact you about it and if so, why didn't they help stop it sinking?

Bridge 72 is Moors Lane at Hillmorton.

So did I!

Anyway now that we know - who is going to Hilmorton?
I cannot get there until the morning because I am already booked out by the OH tonight.
