I had tried all day to reach one of my Drivers who like me is resident on a Canal Boat , eventually I decided I would drive over to Wolverton and see if he was aboard . From the tail end of last year we have picked up a fellow intinerant called Peter who camps alongside in his Tent as we move from place to place , a bit of a character but a decent Bloke nonetheless . Anyway upon arrival I find Ricky standing outside his Boat alongside a 17ft Shetland Cruiser which he tells me that Pete has just bought for £600 . Delighted for him I shook his hand as he invited me aboard . Well for £600 as you can imagine its a bit rough , it does need a refit though it comes complete with Stove , Cooker and Oven already fitted as well as an electric start Honda Outboard which apparently needs a Service , apart from that its all there . Doubtless we shall plunder the Building sites this week for 2x2 and some Ply but at 17ft that shouldn't be an issue . I am at present wondering if I can perhaps put it down as a Tender for my 70ft which will hopefully free up the License Money in the short term and give Pete a bit of breathing space of a week or two . Happy Days as they say , doubtless I shall be on looking for some advice later .
