Tow Tow Tow your boat

I’ve never taken any photos of one boat towing another till today, even when we witnessed the bizarre sight of a narrowboat towing a widebeam towing a rowing boat – I kid ye not… How’s that for ass about face – twice…?

This is what you call “up close and personal” during a tricky operation…

And off they float into the distant (very) blue yonder…
 
Seems weird sat here with their boat missing. If all goes to plan (which it usually doesn’t for them or for us), they’ll be back on Friday without the need for a “backy.” So here’s hoping…!
