Wow. Repairing a broken wheel at Noyon, France, a pleasure craft pulls into the lock and the woman asks me if anything is wrong. I say "no" and that we have repaired the damage. She asks if I would like to join them through some locks. I say yes and "bam", I am on the boat and we are going through one boat lock after another. Peter & Anita are warm and kind. A shipbuilder, Peter knows everything about engines, configurations and boats...what a guy. And what a wife. Anita is generous and thoughtful. A rich experience with them on board " Barracuda."
