that's a fairly big ask, even for a besotted enthusiast

Not really 25-35k on new bottoms, then you have chines if it needs it, then there is the cabin and engine room work, then you got all Sheering if it any good and replace. That before you've even touched the rest of the hull,

It will also depend on how much weight you put in her as to how high up the current planks become an issue, top 2-3 planks all round if not used for much loading you can prob get away with being a bit worse than others, bottom 3 including chine at back and 2 from middle including chine are the ones in the water. Other planks depending where they are can be done in the water as you have near 0 risk to the boat, becomes more a problem when you need to steam and bend as the boat will move while you trying to bend the planks.

Maybe. But it says "sale agreed".

Yes, it obviously was "priced to sell". It is a great deal of fairly new boat for not a great deal of money.

Perhaps because it's ugly and lacks a "proper" engine?

Canaline 52hp engine is as "proper" as any engine installed in a River Class butty ........ indeed any butty if it comes to that.

I recall John Edwards moving off Marcellus to live on Cam.

Advert posted yesterday, so I’d say it is now back on the market - pity the photos don’t do it justice (Haven’t worked out how to copy a link on this iPad thing, but it’s on the duck)

Interesting advert, more about the people and canal life than the boat! Like it.

Looks a lot of money ??

On paper yes maybe, but bare in mind that they probably really want 70k, maybe even decided they'd take 65k, but 'lets pop it on for 75k and see how much interest we get' first.

Is Chiswick the boat that broke the stem post, due to an impact with a wall on the Thames?

I'm not sure what this wacky image brings to the sale of the boat, with uncle fester steering and granny getting stoned out front!

I only paid £400:00 for Chiswick in 1965, certainly not going that high to buy it back.

It certainly gave the concrete towpath edge on the Regent's canal a hefty clout when filming "Zoo Robbery".
