    UK Silly Village/Place Name Competition

    In Norway we have both Paradis and Hell...

    Boat Safety Scheme

    We had ours a year ago, and also got a pdf from the surveyor on e-mail.

    Hire boater basic training

    We had our first hire from Wyvern (in 2013, i think) . They certainly took us through the first lock. I would be very surprised if they have changed their routine.

    Food storage area under the gunnel

    The Wyvern boats we hired had a useful cupboard with a shelf on top under the gunwhale opposite the kitchen. https://www.canalholidays.co.uk/our-boats/2-berth-narrowboats

    Hire boat fuel charges

    Isn't carbon monoxide heavier than air? Or do I remember wrongly?

    First World Problem

    We've had a standard Peugeot one for twenty-odd years, and it is still in daily use. But I would only recommend the pepper mill. We had a salt mill too, which was made from plastic and not steel. It fell apart after 3 times.

    Size of water tank?

    If you think you just need 180 liters, can´t you just make a habit of filling the tank half-full? And leave the tank as it is? I imagine that if you at some point would wanting to sell the boat, a small water tank would be a minus.

    Boat Lease / Hire?

    I know it is not what you are looking for, but if you ever should reconsider: Canal Cruising Company in Stone also has a couple of boats for long term hire. https://www.canalboatlongtermhire.co.uk

    What do you wish I already knew?

    And don't take it for granted that you can get a meal in a pub Sunday evenings. Some pubs serve Sunday Roast at lunchtime/early afternoon, and then close the kitchen. Our first Sunday dinner out hiring ended in self-cooked pasta on board. But do try to have a Sunday Roast somewhere nice!

    What do you wish I already knew?

    Before the first time we hired, we had a browse through the boater's handbook and found it helpful: https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/media/library/141.pdf Have a lovely, relaxing holiday!

    Year & hours.

    Thank you. The list is very useful, but year 2000 is a while ago now, although I appreciate that to an owner of 1936-boats it seems quite modern! So if anyone have an newer version, please share!

    Year & hours.

    Hi, Alan! That's something I have wondered; how do you know when an index number was issued?
