Ellesmere Port BW Trade Meeting

On Thursday 11th March I attended the BW Trade Meeting at Ellesmere Port Boat Museum. It was a reasonably useful meeting with a chance to vent my frustration regarding our problems with the stoppages this winter. We also heard a bit more about BWs plans to introduce "Operators Licences", and I just hope this doesn't significantly increase our operating costs or bureaucracy.

Anyway whilst I was there I managed to see a few coasters on the ship canal and it was good to see progress being made on the repairs on the wide locks (especially as this involved putting historic working boats to good use)
