New boat moving service?

I spotted this at Denham Deep lock and from this angle was wondering how? then why?

Waiting for the lock to fill how? became clear but why? still puzzles me unless it is holed. Then it hit me Perhaps this could be BW`s answer to roadside clamped car removal. A non licenced boat is
spotted. The removal ship moors in front, stop planks removed to sink removal ship, float in narrow boat. Planks in pump out water and off it goes.
NOW the big question is go where?. Don`t worry I found how this was dealt with some 50+ years ago just a bit further along the canal. 
See you next time.

It's a floating dry dock. When we came that way in September, they were pressure washing the hull of the boat inside, ready for blacking.

It doesn't go anywhere, it's a floating drydock :). We had the Duck blacked in a similar one in the Fens.

Thanks for the info. I have never seen one before but somewhere in the back of my mind i remember a marina having something similar available for hire.
