BW helped by putting a gauge at the start of the pound but word soon spread that it was a bit pessimistic so many intrepid boaters have given it a go if they look close to fitting the profile.
The following list shows some of those who have done it and those who tried but failed. In some cases you can click on the name of the boat more details and photos. More reports will be added as we receive them.
