The BAT Squad rides again
Over the past few weeks, under the cover of a 'holiday' (Boat Acquisition Team)members of the squad have been out and about on the system looking for more equipment to assist us with our canal restoration.
A number of items have been shortlisted, but as usual, it will be the availability of funds that will determine just how many we can afford. At the top of the list will be mud hoppers, closely followed by another tug boat. If we go for the 50ft hoppers, it will be possible to pass through the locks without having to split the tug off, something necessary for up and coming planned dredging.
Of course, sponsorship would be most welcome - ducks not required!
