Flecknoe back to Napton Mon 25 May

In view of all the moored boats and visions of half of them trying to go up the Napton flight we set of a 7 am this morning and we were not the first away. We arrived at the bottom of Napton at 8 30 with one boat just leaving the first pound and going up ahead of us. We met boats in half the locks so things weren't to bad and it didn't take very long to reach  our mooring. At the top lock there was a lull in the traffic and we were able to transfer most of the junk in to the car before a boat approached from above. We were packed up and on our way before 11.30 hopefully ahead of the Bank Holiday traffic.
There were quite a few Elton Moss boats about this morning, it seems they now change on a Sunday, but I am not sure where they are based. One steerer said Napton and another said Calcutt.
