Report Hatton Vlockies in Cruise Diaries & Reports Posted Thursday at 15:56 20 hours ago, beerbeerbeerbeerbeer said: So we can avoid them? I didn’t think they’d be about til Easter. Some, and probably most, don't start until Easter. But in my winter cruising area I've often seen them at Penkridge and Atherstone. Never at Fradley though. They seem to be a strictly Easter to October operation, except for the last few weeks but that's only because they've been helping the dredging boats through the locks between Woodend and Hunts Lock.
