You can see the boat is approaching a nice straight bit of canal because the man as let his missis take over the steering.

One of my happiest memories is when we sailed along this canal. It is a beautiful canal and the people we met were great as well. I could steer just as well as my husband could, and work the locks as well. There is an art to it.

He's not reading a book - he's looking at the canal guide, and he's telling her he's sure she should have turned right, not left, at the bottom of the Wigan flight to get to the pier.
