  1. I found a couple of extra photos of the boat which shows some more of the exterior. Perhaps this sheds some more light on what sort of boats were cut together?
  2. Interesting, thanks for your insights. May I ask what a station boat is, and why this would be a negative?
  3. Interesting! Thank you. So you wouldn't think the age of the boat etc would be an issue, assuming the hull is in good condition? (Of course, if I were to look to purchase I would get a full survey!)
  4. Oh that's good to know. Advert: https://www.gumtree.com/p/boats-kayaks-jet-skis/45ft-narrowboat-state-of-the-art-equipment-and-professional-finish/1394693888
  5. Hi all, I have been messaging with someone who has a boat for sale in London. I haven't yet seen it in person, but I asked about the age (as it wasn't listed in the ad). This is the response: The boat is very much one of a kind, it’s actually two boats that were welded together at some point in the early 2000s! The bow dates back to be regarded as a classic historical canal boat, so any time between 1920-1940. The stern is from the 1970s, 1977 I believe. The work done is flawless and the Hull has been so reinforced the last hull survey said it won’t need any welding for a years to come. There are also 3 anodes on the hull if that helps. I've been looking for a NB for about 6 months now and haven't come across anything like this... I understand that older steel tends to be preferred over newer stuff in terms of quality, but also overplating can be a negative. I would assume that welding together one boat out of two halves sort of falls under the category of overplating?! Does anyone have an opinion on whether this is a real dealbreaker? The boat itself (from what I can glean from the ad) looks solid, well fitted out and maintained. Thanks in advance
