BOATING WITHOUT EFFORT
QI would like to experience the canals for a couple of days but don’t want to hire and operate the boat. Does anyone take fare-paying guests for a couple of days, and if so how would I get in touch?

ATONY REPLIES... Private boaters who take any form of payment from guests put themselves into a difficult position, especially if anything goes wrong. To do so would almost certainly invalidate their insurance which would, in turn, invalidate their licence. Best bet is to Google ‘Hotel Boats’ and contact some.
