Gen­er­at­ing a loss

Canal Boat - - Letters -

WHILE CRUIS­ING ON the River Soar, I had reached Millers bridge No. 32 and moored on the bol­lards. It was a beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion with no-one around.

At 1.30pm, I cy­cled to the shops but was back by 2.50pm to find some­one had bro­ken into my boat and stolen my gen­er­a­tor.

Be­cause of my lo­ca­tion and the weight of the gen­er­a­tor, I won­der if this might have been done by some­one on a boat who could have been head­ing to­wards the Grand Union and would have passed through Bar­row upon Soar Lock.

It would help if the vol­un­teer lock-keep­ers could record all the boats and the times that they go through – it could nar­row searches down and catch the cul­prits if nec­es­sary in cases like this. MICHAEL PEASE, nb But­ter­fly
