Canal Boat - - The Boat Test -

This is a very smart boat, both out­side and in. It’s on a good shell by an ex­cel­lent builder and the fit-out is well ex­e­cuted with nice at­ten­tion to de­tail. The re­verse lay­out works, and there’s all the equip­ment you need, along with plenty of things you might class as ex­tras.

And in spite of all of that, it’s not ex­pen­sive. Rob got a good deal be­cause he bought the boat at Crick in a half-built state, but if you wanted to or­der a sim­i­lar one right now the price would be around £100,000. In the cur­rent mar­ket, that’s a lot of boat for a very rea­son­able price.

Of course, the im­por­tant thing is that the boat works for Rob, and he’s de­lighted with it. Spend­ing his re­tire­ment boat­ing alone isn’t what he imag­ined or wanted and some­times life is harsh, but at least this boat means that Rob can get away, re­mem­ber the good times, and use Ele­shanne to help raise aware­ness of his wife’s con­di­tion, and money for re­search into it.
