A great scrunching of ice made me jump up to look out to see a push tug almost swing into the bow of our boat as he had no control over the steering in the ice. When he saw my astonished expression he mouthed ‘sorry’, so that’s ok then is it? He then put his engine into hard reverse to avoid us, but then the flat that he was pushing swung across very close to the boat behind us! Then the following work boat overtook him, what fun, not.
I think it did help when they saw me with my camera as they slowed down just a tad. Hate to think what all these boats passing us through the ice are doing to our recent bottom blacking! Anyway, these two are on route back to Rose Narrowboats, so look out if you’re moored on their route.
