Not exactly a joke but I was trying to use humour to perhaps prompt the realisation that the difference between the 9000 movements claimed for boats passing through Hillmorton Locks and the 8362 movements actually recorded at the bottom locks could be that many boats (say 638) come down the flight merely to wind in the boatyard entrance so they use 6or7 and 4or5 but not 2or3.

OK. Where does the 9,000 figure come from? I can’t find it in the report.

The report is clear that boat movements and lockings are different things. It’s also apparent that one locking consists of filling and emptying a lock. That means two boats can transit for every lock cycle. No surprise therefore that the number of boat movements is greater than the number of lock cycles.
