The gaps are most likely due to missing boat=yes tags. I noticed that 
one river I mapped had a couple of gaps & sure enough, no boat=yes.

I encourage all riparian mappers to re-visit their efforts & 
differentiate between navigable & non-navigable waterways. This applies 
to canals as well as rivers, since many neglected or disused canals are 
unnavigable even though they may still be wet.
