Narrowboat on the Trent
Pages 13, 38.  VHF Radio
Experience last week has shown that mobile-phone network access on the tidal Trent is still patchy, and the situation differs with various network providers.  Therefore, we still recommend that communicating by VHF radio remains the safest option for boat crews, and it is worthwhile gaining the required training and qualifications to do so (page 38).  Most people enjoy the challenge and feel more in control on the tidal Trent when they can hear, and communicate with, lock-keepers and other vessels in the vicinity.

To gain access to the "deluxe sanitary station with palatial showers" a door-opening code has to be obtained from the lock-keeper.
