Today was the closest I’ve come yet to going in (having got out in the boat – see Splosh! for previous excursion into lake). Simon and I were coming back through the bridge and my bow side blade got completely and utterly stuck in the huge morass of weed. How we didn’t capsize I don’t know (all credit to Simon though, for managing to sit the boat). It then took me ages to extract my blade before we could get going again. Needless to say, light pressure was the order of the day through the bridge after that.
Has anyone got any ideas why it is so bad this year? It is getting so thick we’ll be able to walk across the lake soon!
More importantly, can anyone suggest how to get rid of the stuff, before someone really does themselves some damage?
