THE OWN­ERS

Canal Boat - - The Boat Test -

MARK WILL­MOTT AND SIÂN MOR­GAN al­ready owned a boat when they met a cou­ple who had a Fern­wood. “We didn’t even re­alise such nice boats ex­isted,” says Siân. So when they made the de­ci­sion to live on board, it seemed the nat­u­ral so­lu­tion.

Mark spent seven years as a he­li­copter me­chanic in the Fleet Air Arm, then joined an air­line as cabin crew, which is where he met Siân who still flies. He broke his an­kle paraglid­ing, so needed to find a job with less travel and the cou­ple bought a guest house. He also gigs reg­u­larly as the bass player in a Queen trib­ute band called For­ever Queen.

He had to work hard to con­vince Siân that liv­ing afloat was the right idea, but she’s now a con­vert and hop­ing to re­duce her work­ing hours so the cou­ple can travel fur­ther afield.
