  1. May I suggest yo get an expert in to look at your set up before you set the boat on fire.

  4. Best sell it with a disclaimer... 'If this boat blows up and destroys neighbouring boats on the over-crowded Regents Canal because the doer upper didn't know what he was doing, it's your own fault.'

  9. They are tried and tested as holiday boats but like many GRP and steel cruisers are not really geared up for winter living. They'll probably have a heater of some sort but unlikely man enough for 24/7. And is the insulation up to it? We experienced minus double figures in Burgundy and saw some boats with so much condensation they looked to be drowning fron the inside.
  10. I put this together a few years ago for someone. Pretty much up to date but it may give you food for thought... http://abargeatlarge.co.uk/articles/Looking for a barge/index.html

  12. The history of our royal family makes better reading than watching the current shambles.
  13. One thing to be aware of is that some of the northern French waterways are commercial and pretty large, some say not ideally suited to narrowboats. This is partly because on-boat bollards are not ideally situated and gunwales and fore decks are not easy to walk around, particularly if you're in a panic. With this in mind it's worth considering being dropped in mid-France, Migennes or St. Jean de Losne for example where there is access to smaller (and lovely) waterways. The other point is that there is debate about how long these smaller waterways will be open due to funding. There are mutterings about closures so don't hang about too long.
  14. Perhaps it's time for someone in the know to check out your electrics.
