Good to see that the swan is keeping its head down, but I'm concerned about the airdraft of its tail!

Hello all

We were thinking about booking a last minute week starting September 30th and even had a Bridgecraft boat (higher car parking facilities) in mind.
However, given the present levels seen on Southgates webcam and the above photo),we feel it may be safer to get the passports out.
Any comments from the people in the know would be most helpful.
Thanks in advance.

Dave

Hi Gary

Thanks for that - sorry about lack of etiquette and slow responses in chat room, never been in one before.
Have to go and think about it now.

Hi Gary

In recent years, if all a pilot had to do was take boats through the bridge, he'd have died of boredom!  Pilots have always been expected to multi-task.  They are employed by a working boatyard and dayboat hirer and operate, usually single-handed, from the yard's very busy front office.  I always found the hardest part of the job to be when the tides were high and having to explain to often devestated hirers that passage through the bridge was impossible - and likely to be for the predictable future.

Don't panic, Michael,
Waters are high at the moment, but not as bad as it may seem.  Just in case anyone hadn't noticed, Alan's picture shows one of the side arches at Potter. The start of the main arch can just be seen on the left.

Ive just had a look at Royall's webcam, and although it doesnt seem to be updating very often, its showing the water levels to be about level with the bottom of the wooden quay heading.

The winds for next week are mainly forcast to be from the south/south west, so hopefully the river levels will drop. It al depends on how much more rain there is to come, as the forcast is for a fairly wet week.
