A restored motor boat has been dragged down the line of the former Lancaster Kendal canal, reaching the end of the waterway at Canal Head.
The stunt recreated the "portage" in Pirates of the Caribbean where Captain Jack Sparrow pulls a boat overland. The Captain was played by Laurraine Smith, a Morecambe photographer.
The boat, Whimbrel, was restored by Colin Ogden after being abandoned on Windermere. He organised the stunt as part of a long-running campaign by the Friends of the Lancaster Canal to get the northern reaches to Kendal, closed more than 70 years ago, reopened.
A report by Healthwatch Cumbria, which looks after patients' interests in the NHS, says hospital services should be maintained in both West Cumbria and Carlisle.

A Cumbrian police officer who tackled a man armed with a Samurai sword has been nominated for a bravery award.
The man was said to be attacking vehicles and threatening people with the sword in the village of Scaleby, near Carlisle.

Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting at Carleton Hall, Penrith, on 6 July.
Mr McCall said: "Holding the Chief Constable to account is a crucial part of my role as it is all about ensuring the operational performance remains at the good level that we have all experienced."

Fourteen members of the Cumbria Police cycle club say a charity ride at the weekend was the hardest thing they'd ever done
The riders completed a route called the Tommy Goodwin challenge, around the boundaries of the county's policing areas. The riders covered 212 miles in 19 hours.
Sgt Lee Brumpton said: "The conditions were not favourable with heavy downpours which makes a total of 14,000ft of climbing even more difficult."
The riders were raising money for the Calvert Trust, which provides adventurous activities in the Lake District for people with disabilities.
A Cumbrian teenager is preparing to travel to the Czech Republic to represent England at a gathering of young bee-keepers.
Sam Stott (pictured, left), from Storth near Milnthorpe, will take part in the event, which includes competitions and skill-sharing.

Bethan Lishman, a deaf athlete from Cockermouth, has been competing in the hammer throw at international level.
Farmers in Cumbria have mixed views about the future now the UK is to leave the European Union over the next few years.
Agriculture has always been at the centre of EU policy. Leaving the union will leave the UK government free to decide whether to continue or increase subsidies from the public purse, or do without them - New Zealand for example, abolished all government support in 1984.
Some farmers, like Les Armstrong, believe farmers will be better supported when the European Union is no longer in charge. But the hope is that this will mean stronger backing, not less support.
We have to move agriculture forward in this country based on what's best for this country, not 27 other countries.
The National Farmers'Union is holding a national conference in London later this week to discuss the way forward.
Food production has got to be massively more important than it has been in the past.

Jeremy Corbyn is facing a vote of no confidence and there were a string of resignations yesterday.
Barrow Council leader Dave PIdduck told BBC Cumbria: "We don't want to start attacking each other because that is not what the people of the country want to see - what they want to see is how do we move forward, how do we deal with the result of the referendum."
More on the story we brought you yesterday about Carlisle United defender Tom Miller signing a new contract.
The two-year deal will keep the 25 year old at Brunton Park until the summer of 2018.
He joined the Cumbrians on a one-year contract after he decided to leave Lincoln City in June 2015.
Carlisle United manager Keith Curle has been giving his opinions after England's defeat by Iceland last night at Euro 2016 and Roy Hodgson's resignation as manager.
He said: "Yesterday's performance you're thinking, where's the plan...show us how we are going to be able to progress as a footballing nation...we haven't got a plan, we didn't have a plan, and we certainly didn't have a plan B.
"I think we were a team that lacked experience, lacked a game plan or an obvious game plan and we looked like young talented players that were left to go and play how they wanted to play.."
