Dowley Gap Take 2

Back in February BW drained the locks and aqueduct at Dowley Gap (see my report) in order to effect various repairs which included new lock gates and bank strengthening.

Dowley Gap Aqueduct rewatered

What a shame that the top set of gates was not replaced at the same time as the other two sets.

Dowley Gap top gates still leaking ferociously

In order for the bottom gates to be opened I had to reverse into this waterfall which soaked my legs and swamped the rear deck.
