Level best

lock tide parret

The waters were up as we passed over the bridge this morning, lapping the high banks along Cocklemoor and Bow Wharf. On Tuesday the lock gates were open at Oath; with the high tides coming and all the recent rain, we’ve been wondering how the water system is coping. There’s plenty of information to be found on the Flooding on the Levels Action Group Fb page, including an excellent diagram of how the overspill and storage system works to distribute and hold water for pumping off between tides.

In the workshop we’ve been busy levelling out the base of the boat and mapping everything out, ready for gluing and cutting tomorrow… exciting times!
