Nar­row­boat dream

Canal Boat - - Letters - ALF OWEN, via email

IN RE­PLY TO your ar­ti­cle, I am a pi­lot on a nar­row­boat af­ter­noon tea cruiser and I love my job pi­lot­ing the nar­row­boat along the Leeds & Liver­pool Canal.

I have hired a nar­row­boat for a week’s hol­i­day and I would love to own one, but I can­not af­ford to. I do, though, have an At­lanta 24 canal cruiser, which I can af­ford. They are much harder to get out of quickly though, or to moor up in a broad­side wind. And just gen­eral ex­it­ing and en­ter­ing is harder. Climb­ing over the gun­wales can be a pain as well. For me, the nar­row­boat wins hands down all the time. Maybe one day…
