Braunston tunnel,loads of locks and a duff battery.

An overcast morning while we waited for a companion boat to go through the tunnel  and locks with.
We accompanied a delightful couple through the tunnel from which we exited as dry as when we entered. There were lots of boats travelling up and down the locks which made traversing them so much easier and almost enjoyable, as the sun came out and the temperature rose.
After Braunston lock we made contact with Johno of Union Canal Carriers who had been recommended to fix our electrical problems, which he did within minutes, isolating a duff battery.
We got moved further away from the lock while Johno carried on checking things, including replacing worn alternator belts and refitting an alternator incorrectly fitted originally.
