    If your first time do have a couple of decent long warps for locking in.
    Bits of short string employed by non tidal Thames boaters usually insufficient.
    Its a deep old lock.
    Or do what the old hands do, hang around until the newbies have struggled to get their lines up.......and moor on them.

    OO - look - more LTTTs than any other craft in that lock full.

    The last lock in after the Mayors Cruise, the test run before Ye Ryhte Olde Royal Stitche up for places on the Queens Jubilee by the Thames clubs cabal.
    Rainy and ebb tide with bit of wind and not pleasant.
    True to form, all the larger boats (mostly from upper Thames and most far more capable of handling the wind and chop outside had managed to get in on the the first couple of lock ins, leaving the canal boats bouncing around outside in the tidal stream for some considerable time and really struggling to hold against the tide.It was getting towards dark.
    Fortunately the lock staff realised and kept the lock open beyond the normal time range to get the stragglers in.
    Lock gates cannot be used around low water and if they closed the gates the poor so and so faced an unpleasant night.
    The lack of gin places is simply due the fact they were all comfortably inside and moored up ages ago.

    12 boats on list so far, hope to get at least double that number
    Most of the club is away up the East Coast/Holland/France/ IOW, boats leaving today hoping to get to Dartmouth, will collar them on their return.
