Hello sailor

I'm thinking of going to live on a narrowboat when circumstances permit.
Anyone got experience of life at 5mph. Pros and cons please

By jove eyes pie, we could merge businesses, Arfur Nower coach trips and your canal cruises would go down a treet,
Book an holiday or cruise from my corner shop,
