The bridge was fine, but a fairlead 'pinged' off at the lock - my fault I foolish tied up on it before QISMA was all alongside. The 26 tons was too much for it!
Then we grounded between the lock and the bridge. The term 'Islip Incident' with us for ever more!
Still, for almost the entire day we had the Nene to ourselves.

Then you get a taste of what it's all about at Weston Favell. We ARE moored!
