Later on Saturday we got a call from Pete at River Canal Rescue to say that they had located a new lever assembly. The only problem was it was in Middlewich in Cheshire. The plan was for an RCR man to pick it up and drive it down to Pete . With the time getting on Pete said it would now be tomorrow before he gets back to us. That was no great problem for us.
What a great service that was. It did cost us £50 excess on top of our yearly policy of £130, but when you consider the part alone was £238 and what they did to get us going again in such a short time it was money well spent.
