    River Weaver

    Notice Alert Weaver Navigation Starts At: Marsh Lock Ends At: Marsh Lock Saturday 2 June 2018 12:00 until further notice Type: Navigation Closure Reason: Boat damage Update on 28/08/2018: Following the completion of additional inspection and dive work last week, our engineers have been able to better assess the condition of the damaged gate. Whilst the inspection confirmed that operation using the damaged gate is not achievable; procedures are being developed to allow a limited passage through the lock utilising the undamaged gate. Details of the navigation restrictions will be confirmed later this week. Major gate repairs are still required to allow full operation of the lock and these are now scheduled in the winter works programme.

    There would be no crew on the tow, normal to tow dead ship like this, they should have had a paint mark on the waterline of the Oliver Cromwell which is normal on this sort of tow.

    Insurance covering use on tidal waters

    I use lNavigators & General which cover the boat for non tidal waters of the UK but include inter- connecting tidal stretches for direct access to Inland Navigation systems. By the way can I ask where is your new boat..?
