The Kennet and Avon Canal is to remain partially closed near Bath until at least Tuesday after a narrow boat capsized in a lock.
It happened at Lock 11, Abbey View Lock, at about 14:00 GMT on Saturday.
A spokesman for the Canal and River Trust said it had been caused by the boat getting stuck on the cill at the back of the lock as water drained out.
A crane required to lift the boat out will not be on site until Tuesday or Wednesday, the spokesman added.
It means a 600m (650yds) stretch of canal between Bath Bottom Lock to Bath Top lock has been closed to canal traffic.
Nobody was injured in the incident, the spokesman said.
