exactly how we found it when we had one, you need a lot of time to get anywhere and when your restricted to a few weeks it gets a bit tedious. best thing about it is getting merry while your cruising alonghaving said that my mate got done on lake windemere drunk in charge of a boatThe biggest down side to boating i found, is that it,
A. takes a week to get an hours drive away
B. takes another week to get back
c. you can only travel the same bit of canal or river so many times before you go stir crazy
Apart from those few considerations the water is a very nice place to play and relax
Its something Ive looked at - but, Im 6'3" and feel I would be ducking all the time (especially as the walls appear to slope inward).
Are there boats now which have higher ceilings/roofs ?
Im told Im getting closer to 6'3" wide too so would I struggle with the coridor as well?
that's a real bummer ..I deliver to a lot off marinas and boat owners are not happy
most boats are fitted with one tank which runs and heats the boat !!now if rules come in that they must use white diesel to run the boat.. but they can still buy red for heating!!!!!oh:
that's a real bummer ..
I wonder how they will enforce that one, canal bank spot inspections ?
It's rather ironic you should raise Canal Boat Full-timing. When we spent a few weeks camped between Woburn Abbey and Milton Keynes. We used to cycle into Milton Keynes to do shopping. Several times we rode along the Canal footpaths and saw many Canal boats. Sandy said why don't we have one for Summer in the UK and the RV for going into Europe? I made some enquiries and found out HOW MUCH they COST. Needless to say, we stuck to RV's.
