At the recent Stoke Bruerne boat gathering the small Woolwich motor and butty pair of Archimedes and Ara demonstrated locking techniques. Operated by the Candle Bridge Carrying Company they looked the part, particularly being heavily laden. The photos below say it all.

The Candle Bridge web site, which is only partially functioning, has some intriguing images of their boats receiving sign writing. It will be interesting to view it when it gets up and running.
