BOATERS’ NOTES

Canal Boat - - The Cruise Guide -

Com­mer­cial freight: be aware that large loaded barges may be less ma­noeu­vre­able, need to keep to the deep chan­nel, and ex­ert a con­sid­er­able ‘pull’ when pass­ing moored craft.

Tidal Ouse: those con­sid­er­ing ar­riv­ing or depart­ing via the tidal Ouse (the only route for 70ft nar­row­boats) should only do so if ex­pe­ri­enced and in suit­ably seaworthy craft, prop­erly equipped (in­clud­ing VHF ra­dio) and with the ben­e­fit of lo­cal knowl­edge or ad­vice.
