Can we all just clarify that this boat was not started by Blisworth tunnel Narrowboats or Mill wharf Boat co as the picture implies.
Thankyou, Blisworth tunnel Narrowboats/ Mill wharf Boat co.
Hope to see you all at Crick 2009, where we will be showing another stunning boat built aroung a 1907 FMC Motorboat "Columbia" built for Kevin Richmond MBE.
Since I started posting to this topic in July 07 you will see that I have not mentioned any company name apart from the company that we signed the contract with, ensured that the current name on the sign has been obscured or out of focus on the photographs posted.
No matter how many name/business changes it will always be a part of the history of The Maisibert that it was started at Blisworth,removed from Blisworth and completed by Heartwood Narrow Boats.
As I am not sure who I am replying to as you have decided not to fill in the profile part of this site and you are the new owner of the business I apologise for inheriting the history, but if not a chameleon changes its appearance to suit its surroundings but inside it is the same creature.
We have joined the R.C.R. ( River Canal Rescue) and they enquired what outstanding warranty we had on our engine, so armed with the knowledge that Beta Marine build engines to order and our WOK number we contacted Beta Marine a few weeks ago and discovered that our engine was tested on the 6/7/05 and was sold to J.M. Clarke Narrowboats which is fine except that we did not sign our contract with J. M. Clarke until the 5/12/05.
So either they were confident we would sign up or this engine was destined for another craft, perhaps that explains why it was set up for 12v instead of 24v as specified?
