In the Middle of Summer!The pump out machine at Abingdon has been 'broken' for the last 5 days. And nobody seems to know or care when it will be working again. Some people say it's the card reader that's broken. Others maintain that the "right type of truck" can't be found to empty the storage tank. Boaters needing to pump out their poo urgently are being sent downstream to the marina (where it costs £15 instead of £8).

Jolly bad show, EA.

    Have you contacted the EA about it. they can probably tell you what the problem realy is and when it will be fixed.

    Hi Brian. No, i haven't. wouldn't know where to start. assumed the lock keeper would be best informed person. but he was just guessing, too.

    we're off down the river now. but i expect the breakage has been inconvenient to a great many people. especially as it's been stinking hot recently.
