We were glad that we made good time through the canal yesterday as it is raining quite heavily this morning. Considering that the canal is 9miles long and we passed through it in 5 hours and taking into account the time spent in the locks it suggests that Gordon manage to row the Nancy at about 3.5/4knots - quite amazing! We certainly overtook most walkers. This morning we did a permanent repair to the damaged knee and beefed up a chain plate and one of the rowing pads. The forecast for tomorrow is still good and Angus and I head the Nancy North towards Oban and Mull.
