So I'm fulfilling an ambition I've had for 25 years (blimey!) and I've bought/am buying a narrowboat. The boat is in Herts on the Grand Union, and I want to move it to somewhere on the Lea, maybe up to Stanstead Abbots-ish.
The problem is I have zero experience of boating, that's a lie actually in 1998 I drove a narrowboat for about 15 seconds - I ended up smacking into some lock gates in Islington, I was swiftly removed from command.
The current owner of my boat is going to give me a day of his time on Friday (if current plan goes ahead) and we'll start our cruise through that-London. However I wouldn't mind some tuition/company on the remaining days. So if you're a personable individual, skilled in the ways of the inland boater and are able to empart that knowledge to a boating neophyte then please get in touch, I am able to pay for your time.
I'll be staying on the boat overnight, but expect you'll be going back to your own boat/whatever and then coming back to my boat on the next day. The boat is 45' long and about 9' wide so shouldn't present too much of a problem size wise anyway.
Hopefully this post is allowed - I guess it's technically an ad - if you need to move it please do
