But not by me 😎 a very nice looking wide beam  in the Hull marina 

just wondering if it’s anyone off here 

 

I think a clearer definition / description of the boat is required - there are '100s' of boats in the marina that are "wider" than narrowboats.

The Border Force boats are quite nice looking, "very military" but boat shaped, and certainly over 7 foot beam.

 

We were in there (Railway Dock) until a couple of years ago and we are a certainly a widebeam (23 foot beam)

The words "very nice looking" and "wide beam" are not often used in the same sentence!

This is true but I was quoting what my mate said 👍😜

As you say there are lots of wide beam boats in Hull marina but what my mate described it was a steel wide beam boat that looked like a narrow beam  with a pram hood  and a cratch fitted

And yet he still described it as "very nice looking", did he? Hmm. ;)

I wasn't questioning your taste in boats - I was questioning your taste in friends! :D

 

(I jest, of course - he's probably a lovely chap and you can always educate him about boating matters.)
