Show them how to work unbalanced gates

There could be a very easy answer to the issue of using unbalanced lock gates, writes Bill Ridgeway.

CaRT has issued instructions on how to get a boat through a troublesome lock which people with practical experience say are not workable.

The training technique

I would assume that CaRT has worked through their instructions at a lock-side. There is a training technique of TELL them what to do, SHOW them what to do and let them DO.

It should not be too much of a problem for CaRT to give a practical demonstration of how it should be done—if it is up for the challenge!

I can't see it happening but I would be more than delighted to be proved wrong!
