    They could easily go through it a dozen times a day. I've watched this often and been on board when absurdly long and narrow boats enter and leave locks without so much as a gentle scrape on the walls. Now, my reading tells me that the hydraulics are such that a boat once off center will get pulled even more off center. But it doesn't look like that. It seems that as long as the boat enters lined up and on center, it stays that way. What's the deal?
