Joining forces

In the Ryeford to Dudbridge pound, the dry dredging boys have been doing a fantastic job with their Long Reach excavator. 

Meanwhile, the Wet dredging boys have been working Patricia up to speed by clearing along the bit on the offside that the long reach isn’t quite long enough for.   For a short time today, we were VERY  close together.

Patricia and crew can now up legs and move forward quite quickly, so we decided it was a good idea to move backwards towards the lock, picking up an empty hopper on the way. 
Dredging then continued until almost dark - there’s plenty to do up there! 

"May all your combined leaks never exceed your bilge pump capacity.
