Yes I took my Nicholson 38 through, agree an amazing experience, damned expensive 6k though.

The Greeks tell an amazing story of how one of their naval admirals who in pursuit of an enemy who was going the long way around the Peloponnese.
He did it by lifting his fleet up on to the isthmus, dragging them to the other side and lowering back into the water.
This was achieved by using thousands of slaves, and almost as many girls.
The men lifting the boats up were rewarded with the favours of the girls, at the other end when they had hauled the ships ready to be put back in the water, there were girls waiting for them, again to reward their efforts.
The story tells that a particular part of a woman's anatomy can haul ships faster than a man can.

It worked as the navy ambushed the enemy they were in pursuit of and defeated them.
