    not much point without an engine, unless you like staying put so quite expensive in my opinion
  3. New Statesman article on narrowboats.

    a few years ago, as a hirer, we shares the locks from the tunnel down into braunston with a privately owned boat crewed by a middle aged couple, now, they shared all the chores 50/50 and strict timewise, they had a travel alarm next to the tiller and did 1 hour stints, they actually changed places while leaving a lock so i was chatting to the man one minute and when we entered the next chamber the lady was at the tiller

  8. Otters in the BCN - how many are there?

    yes, otters will see all wildlife off, where i keep my boat the otters arrived about 3-4 years ago and there has been a noticeable drop in all the resident wild life, mallard, coots, water hens, but on the up side they have also done away with the mink problem we were having
