  2. They are a middle of the road, conventional perfectly OK shell. There are boats that are, say 10% better but would cost you 20% more, that sort of thing. A sort of Ford. For those of us bought up on old wooden joey boats and plywood cruisers an absolutely marvellous boat. If you get a new shell pay a bit extra to get it epoxy painted.

  9. Have a quick look at the back of the instrument panel too. My Beta wouldn't stop when I pushed the stop button. Some fool had dislodged a wire whilst fitting a radio. Might have been me...

  13. I personally don't know of any but there must be many, especially the ones with a new stern and counter. its all those riveted seams and things that would be a headache. Heat exchanger cooling using canal water would be easier or even external cooling pipes if they could be squeezed in. Its always struck me how inefficient keel cooling tanks are. I have a Beta 43 with a heat exchanger, the innards of that exchanger are the size of a couple of baked bean cans full of tubes with canal water flowing through them. The exhaust and water that comes out of the side of the boat is comfortably warm, if that engine was keel cooled it would need a great big slab of a thing welded to the boat and there's every chance it would still be too small or barely big enough. Odd.
  14. Never heard it myself but if a 7` boat should be able to get to most places then that is reduced to 6`10" and the sides are pulled in to a 6` 6" across the bottom that makes for a really narrow narrowboat, then you take off , say, 4 " either side for framing, battens etc. you end up with 5` 10" . I've always thought I could do with losing half a stone, if I ever get another narrow boat I might have to lose a lot more.
