The maiden cruise adventures of the Mainship Pilot 34 Sedan - DoubleG
We turned into a fairly derelict area that the plotter (now behaving itself) indicated led to the entrance to the locks, before there was no more data to display (nothing beyond this point on the paper charts as well) and we soon came to an apparent dead end, with a large electronic sign beaming the following message at us: For security reasons, the locks will be closed from July 2 to July 29.
We were reading it on July 3. After some seven hours of an interesting cruise we'd made it to the very doors of our destination only to find them locked (pun intended).
