Crew Names:

TV Filming Day - We had been asked to use Kevayling in filming an up and coming TV program, which is why we brought her to the upper Medway this week. I departed from Allington and headed to Tovil to pick up the film crew and presenters of the program (one of which was Hugh Dennis, a well known actor). Having got all onboard we spent the next couple of hours stopping, starting, turning about and repeat cruise passes a site on the river. Finally disembarking at East Farleigh lock.

A great day, a great crew and much fun!
