THE OWNER

Canal Boat - - Boat Test -

Lau­rence Moore has re­tired af­ter spend­ing more than forty years work­ing for BT, lat­terly as a spe­cial­ist in mi­crowave ra­dio sys­tems. He be­came very fa­mil­iar with masts across the coun­try, and has been up many of them, in­clud­ing Em­ley Moor in West York­shire which is more than a thou­sand feet tall.

Al­though this is his first boat, boat­ing has been in his fam­ily for decades; his brother had a boat back in the 1980s, and knew the Bryce­lands who founded Braid­bar Boats.

Lau­rence has been cy­cling all his life and has done some epic long dis­tance trips, in­clud­ing cy­cling north of the Arc­tic cir­cle in Nor­way and Finland, and around Ice­land. He’s pass­ing on his love of bikes to the younger gen­er­a­tion, as a cy­cling teacher.
