SK5717 : Filling the lock

Filling the lock
Filling the lock
Two boats arrived to lock down and their crews have opened the paddles to fill the lock. If there had been a boat in the lock it would have been dangerous to open the paddles in the lock gates fully, like this, as this is likely to swamp and sink the boat.
