    We pasted Mr Hewitt while boating in 2017, I was going to say last year but a new one has come along, as we were pasting a rather nondescript boat when a voice shouts out, "That's my old boat". I asked what he thought of it to which he replied. "Bloody marvellous!" Which is good to know.

    Yes it had a PD2 in it until I got it that is.

    Yep, she was Rainbow for a spell. Bloody awful name but maybe apt for the 60s.

    Oops, error. It is NOT Bude but Langho, sorry - Bude came later. Its been a long Christmas. The last time I saw Langho she was on the bottom not too far from Bude (the boat that is). Need to remember to think before I type.

    Using the wash from the prop? I used to thread a rope through the belt loops of my jeans and tow them behind the motor to get that stone washed look - if the canal water looked clean enough!

    Who's the painter

    I have lived with it for a great many years and I must say that it does my head in but... after taking it down and putting it away I decided to not get rid of it and put it back on the wall. It's a love hate thing really.

    Braunston abandoned boat ?

    I thought that Mouse and Mole were built for working in the tunnel (Braunston) when it was closed for relining way back when. I have worked with one of then when it was used as a pusher tug for bridge and tunnel inspections with BWB. More here.
