I think you're right there. I seem to remember that it wasn't its original name on the license which would be right as Thaxted is now Widgeon.

Unfortunately not. The bit I can see says "Trouble &"

In Topic: so whats the rules for canoists

Exactly so therefore not actually in the canoe when it is in a lock.

 

Can't see a canoeist stopping, opening the gates, getting back in the canoe, paddling into the lock, getting out of the canoe, closing the gate, etc, etc. Dragging the thing in and out with a long bit of string is infinitely easier and at minimal risk to the canoeist.

To me locks seem a bit dodgy for canoeists not sure i'd risk it

 

If you think about it, with a windlass in his hand he's probably not in the canoe when using the locks.

I think we've got a copy of the 2nd one too.  Can't check if it's that exact year though as it is on the boat.
