We pulled the pins at 8.00am and got to the first lock where things were going swimmingly until Marky came out of the lock and hit a log.
From this point on he had lost a lot of power, so at 1mph we kept on going.
We had a look and thought it was the gearbox, but on further investigation could see that the blade on the prop had bent out of line with the other blades.
We made our way over the Aqueduct of the River Trent.
The next hurdle was the narrows at Armitage which used to be a tunnel.
We took the turn onto the Coventry Canal.
