What speed can I do on the narrow boat?

The rivers have a limit around 4 mph, (about walking pace) with some wider rivers having a slightly higher figure usually 7mph. When working out the timing of a route, you need to also allow about 15 minutes per lock. This means that in one hour you should expect to cover either 4 miles, or do 4 locks, or a combination of them both!
