|Spring line set up on TQ|
I fitted a spring line on TQ tonight and I'm glad I did. The canal was very busy this afternoon and into the evening. Some boaters throttle back as they pass, but do so far too late and then not down to a tick-over and they still create too much wash, others don't bother throttling back at all, and one young upstart thought he could go as fast a he liked, even boasting to his mates that he was doing eight miles an hour. I guess he had a GPS. Very few actually throttle back to a tick-over and in plenty enough time not to rock your boat. The spring line stops all boat movement even when some oike goes haring past at a million miles an hour.
