A simple record to try and show each boat on the water during the festival. It should be pointed out that the only boats to visit this section since the 1920s have been the weedcutter and two trips by Thomas Dadford.

The moving of Thomas Dadford from its usual berth by Neath Castle to the temporary berth at the festival site at Abegarwed. Took six hours due to the amount of tree pruning required to ensure clear access and visibility for visiting trail boats.

The barge is normally taken out of the water each year, being lifted over the bridge in Neath Town Centre. This year due to bridge work the barge was 'sailed' upstream to Aberdulais Basin for removal and the following photographs show this procedure.
