THE OWN­ERS

Canal Boat - - The Boat Test -

COLIN AND KRYSIA EVER­ALL first saw their boat in the wa­ter at the Crick Show af­ter it had ar­rived by lorry di­rect from the builder. Then, once the show was over, they set off on their maiden voy­age. Since then, they’ve not only taken the boat to its home moor­ing on the Ken­net & Avon, they’ve used it al­most ev­ery week­end too.

Colin is a self em­ployed IT con­sul­tant, while Krysia is a free­lance hair­dresser. But she’s also artis­tic in other ways and has a side­line in pic­ture fram­ing, which means she knows good qual­ity join­ery when she sees it. She al­most stum­bled into an­other ca­reer, when a vis­i­tor to Crick wanted to com­mis­sion her to do the in­te­rior de­sign on their boat.

At the mo­ment this is a hol­i­day boat, but the cou­ple have a five-year plan to wind down work and even­tu­ally live on board. So they’ve been care­ful to fu­ture-proof the boat so it will work as a live­aboard.
