Anyone here been on a narrowboat, or know someone whos got one?
- Just wondering?
Yes I have. It was boring.
I don't know anyone that owns one though
My grandad has a steam narrow boat, which i spend a lot of time on.
- Its really great, i love it. Messing with the engine etc
for canals?? I know a few people that have them or have even lived in them, a couple of them built their own.
Yeah, there are lots of hire companys.
- Big ones like CanalTime, Alvechurch, Vikings Afloat, etc
- But also small local companys who are often very friendly and helpfull.
I have, and it was possibly one of the worst holidays ive had. it rained continually for a week, during which time we had to operate the locks in the pouring rain and steer the boat where u couldnt see where you were going. im sure if the weather was nicer i would have enjoyed it, but theres only so many card games you can play in a week...
