Easter trip to Chester (Wednesday 30/3/2016)

Engine reading at end of day: 176.0hr Miles:3 Locks:4

Trouble-free solo journey for Andrew from Barbridge to Swanley Bridge Marina.

Engine was quite reluctant to start. Glow plugs don't seem to be doing much. Will need to get them looked at...

Bit of a queue for Hurleston Locks. There were two boats each with 3 crew behind but Andrew still had to work most of the locks single-handed... 

Emptied the cassette at the services block then back to marina for lunch. 

Tidied up e.g. rubbish and ash-can then home via Nantwich Canal Centre to arrange work on glow plugs.

Gave two German hitch-hikers a lift from A41 / A55 junction to Prestatyn. They had started at London in the morning so made good progress. Aiming to hike the North Wales Coast Path.
