Sounds like you had a nice day Mick. Those canals look a bit narrow. I take there is room for two boats to pass?

I know how you must be feeling.
A fiend of ours has had a narrow boat built [he gets very annoyed when I call it a "cut crawler" :D], and as he is a bit of a perfectionist it cost him the grand total of £120K in all.
Anyhow on their maiden voyage he invited my DW and I to meet them for their return leg of the trip back to their house as they had been moored up for the night only a few miles away.
It is 70Ft long and he let me steer it for quite a while. Afterwards I said to him that I thought boating was supposed to be relaxing, however having had to negotiate around 7 locks en-route and narrowly avoiding other boats coming in the other direction, I am of the opinion that kart racing is far more relaxing than that!
Great photos too Mick.
ha ha ha
wow 120k was it a wide narrow boat terry ;) as i saw some that looked twice as wide and were huge. y mate said to me can you sterr the boat for a bit as i want to go see if my mums ok and the sod never came back but saying that i had great fun steering it all day, negotiated the locks and back to the mooring which was reallllllllllly tight but it was just like parking a car tbh. cant wait to go again, although im totally knackered today
thats were the money goes then having it fitted i guess, my mate is doing it himself, at the moment its really basic and just has the expanding insulating foam in between the struts. its the whole experience which i liked, just getting out on the water etc.Originally Posted by Slowhand, post: 37841
