Warning about Chester Weir

Post by Pee Wee » Thu Aug 19, 2010 3:52 pm


A warning to anybody planning on using the weir in Chester: there are some nasty nails/screws sticking up from the wall you slide over at the top to get on to the salmon steps. Wooden planks that used to be there have gone, and the nails are hard to see under the water.

A few of our club's boats were gouged last night, including mine that I'd owned for less than a day :-(
They also look sharp enough to hurt if walking along there in wetsuit shoes.
