What a wash out, all ready but really bad weather so we stayed in the marina! Here are some pictures of the sea lock maintenance instead. The first photo shows the emergency shutters that were put in place which allowed the full lock to be drained. Looks huge when it is empty.
Part of the maintenance was to replace the lock seals, which means that the lock can remain open for ‘free flow’ for a longer period. This will be good for the marina to get more sea water through and the extended flow should keep the channel clearer too.
