Onto the Aylesbury Arm

We came down the Marsworth flight of locks and settled just for one night by the reservoirs. A boat about two boat lengths (100 feet) away decided to run his engine at about 11pm and then about 7 the following morning. The noise was just a distant drone so we ignored the ignorant *astards. Just one night before we set off down the Aylesbury arm so not worth getting into a row but why!. Are these very few boaters just lacking in any form of thought or consideration for the rest of humanity or do they have a mental block, my guess is it`s probably is an alcohol block.
Beauty of living afloat is if your neighbors are not good you move on and that`s what we did. The short little video below shows Jaq taking the boat into the staircase lock leading into the Aylesbury arm.

Hi Les and Jaq,
How lovely to see narrow locks! We have been on K&A/Thames/Paddington arm/Lea navigation since last summer - been reading your blog since last year and getting loads of tips on GUC etc - it's been all new waters for us for a year now. We hope to be in the Aylesbury area the weekend after this so will look out for you if you are still around.
Best wishes to you both
Debby and Dave
