  10. Our first family narrowboat hire was in the early 90s. We hired from Gayton and went through Blisworth tunnel, where the plan was to turn just beyond the south portal. Cue much shouting, swearing and revving of the engine. My wife and one of our sons went to the bows so they could tell me how close to the bank I was. They panicked as we neared the foliage, and grabbed the pole which they used to try to stop me hitting the bank. Not surprisingly, this did little to stop our forward momentum. It did, however, have quite an effect on the bow window, which shattered as the pole was pushed backwards into the front cabin. It was an expensive lesson which, thankfully, I've learnt from (so far).
  11. That’s sad news. He was a nice bloke and our boat is one of those carrying his work. RIP Jon.
