Lockmaster David – 181 viewsWe were the only boat in the lock. After we got secured, Dave asked if he could close the gate. They let him get out of the boat and close the gate. Grabbed the lever and to his surprise, it wasn't as easy as the lock attendants made it look. Think he broke out a little sweat getting it started.
