Tuesday morning.
We now are chuging inland up a river, yesterday 4 bridges had to open for us, we think the like chanel 6 ; but it is all a bit hit and miss. Last night was first lock that raised us 7 meters, at bthe top was a small marina, this being the only place to tie up in 25 miles, however an anchor could have been used.
The curent has run against us at 1-2 kn so a littlr slow.
Gertie decided her filters needed changing yesterday just after we had booked to go through first big bridge, I do not think the bridge keeper was to happy ; but he would have had far more trouble if we had stopped under his bridge.
