Canal Boat - - Tuckeys - CON­TACT: CON­TACT:

LOOK­ING FOR A present that’s prac­ti­cal but will give some­one a gig­gle? Well, here’s a range of use­ful prod­ucts, all fea­tur­ing nar­row­boat car­toons by Ar­mand Fos­ter. There’s a 2016 cal­en­dar (£ 6.50), a nar­row­boat tea towel (£5.75) and a heavy­weight can­vas tote/shop­ping bag (£8.99). Or, if you’ve look­ing for a smaller stock­ing-filler, there are key rings and fridge mag­nets avail­able at £3.99.

They cer­tainly gave us a chuckle. 07795 181770 arm­ PER­HAPS YOU’RE a boater who likes to travel light but, when it comes to wash­ing, you still want a full-size bath towel. The trou­ble is, they take up space. Per­haps the Foutala towel is for you: it’s a full 6ft by 3ft, but the light­weight cot­ton fab­ric packs down to a frac­tion of the size of a nor­mal towel. Our deputy editor stuck one in the side pocket of his pan­nier, ped­alled off to a Wa­ter­way Re­cov­ery Group vol­un­teer camp, and re­ports back that it dealt with the worst that the Gran­tham Canal could throw at him. And the mak­ers say it gets softer and more ab­sorbent with use. He’ll like that. 07971 403171
