Is that code for "the gate was hanging on by a thread due to lack of preventative maintenance"?
Perhaps it's cheaper in the long run to let it go to hell and fish a gate out now and again.
I expect the collar strap broke. It happens from time to time and if it ever happened to a lock I was going through I would report it myself but not everyone would notice it. Does seem a bit over the top to lose the gate completely. I expect the next boat along closed the gate not noticing it was blatantly wobbly then when emptying the lock the gate went walkabout. It really is up to boaters to spot failures and report them.
More likely to lose the gate on the way up. I'd have thought.
If the gate gets anywhere near the normal closed position, and the lock is emptied, I'd expect the gate to be held in position by the water pressure. Do we know if the collar strap broke, or was lifted off (Not sure that's possible on K&A locks: depends on collar design.

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
