Time for a tyre change

Canal Boat - - Letters -

We thought you’d be in­ter­ested in see­ing the rea­son for the loss of for­ward or re­verse that we sud­denly ex­pe­ri­enced while en­ter­ing a lock at Hyde. De­spite the prop turn­ing freely, ap­ply­ing full revs in both for­ward and re­verse, we couldn’t un­der­stand why we were stand­ing still! That was un­til we opened the weed hatch to find this tyre had com­pletely hooked it­self over our prop. Our ef­forts to dis­lodge it were fruit­less but, RCR to the res­cue, and it was off in three min­utes.
