What on Earth Are These For?

Featured Posts

I'm intrigued to know how it's steered.

I'm imagining it's semi-trad.

 

The barrels are on a "shelf" that hangs off the back of the boat - so the tiller is in front of them....

Storage for whatever , like the coneos have but larger.

I think you are right. Dry storage for whatever

Another peculiar thing is that half the windows have been permanently replaced with opaque fibreglass sheets. Altogether a bit weird.

 

Edited to say that I could give the name of the boat, but perhaps that would be a bit unfair to the owner (unless Tree Monkey is right, of course).

This boat is moored just along from me. It has a special platform on the back for these huge containers. Has anyone come across this and know what they are for? (No-one on board so can't be nosy and ask.)

Fuel to replenish the generator powering the lights round the clock?

Portable reservoir - if he gets to a bit of canal with low water levels, he can top the levels up.

I'd go with the dry storage theory. I've a large barrel like that and a few other smaller versions to store stuff in the hold. Useful for low value but handy items .

The map on the boat partly resembles a certain area of Poland, maybe they are purging Carp in fresh water for Christmas Dinner, either that or pickling the Crt Enforcement Teams.

Judging by the inept mess made of recording boat movements the enforcers are already puddled and just need a light pickle to finish the job

Could it be Bizzard"'s boat, fitted with his experimental vertical take off engines, to make single handedly locking easier?
