Towing a Block of Flats

Thanks to a recommendation from my old friend Brian McGuigan, I recently got a job towing a block of flats from Macclesfield to Marple. Just to make matters more interesting, we tied the owner's GRP cruiser on the back to complete the convoy. The whole move took half as long again as a normal tow thanks to the square pontoon shape of the houseboat.

Revenge is sweet! I got a phone call from the houseboat owner yesterday asking for another tow from the bottom of Marple to Portland Basin. I knew Brian was going that way today so I persuaded him to do the job!
