Stepping Stone Raised
After four weeks sitting on the bottom of the canal, nb Stepping Stone was re-floated today.

A crane with 100 ton capacity arrived at 8 am

Nigel & Tom came alongside and did the hard work attaching the chain

The stern was then lifted ....

...and swung round to rest on the bank.

The water then drained out of the bow doors

and later through the drain holes with a pump removing the remainder.

By lunch time the owner and loss adjuster were able to take a look at the re-floated boat.
