You know, I was an ocean going yachtsman all my active life, and I love to see these canal boat people doing what they want to do. Good sailing., all of you !!!!

You are seeing more and more of these ramshackle canal cruiser boats sailing on the canal, but they dont last very long and end up being burned out and sunk.

Shed Ahoy ! trust they wait for low tide before attempting that bridge ahead !!. Still, it is someone's "Pride and Joy" and I think its brilliant. Good one Dennis, like Mick you have an eye for the unusual. Top Lock is a fun place to be I think.

Nothing wrong with your photo Dennis but that is one ugly boat !

I wonder if all the stuff you find in sheds is in there, if it was my shed on there it would definitely sink!

Mick, you are not wrong, I have a photo of one wreck that was sunk in the canal near where we live, it was raised and tied to the side, by gum its an ugly beggar. I wonder where they put the rubbish when they scrap them, not much recycling stuff is there ?.

Nice post Mick. And while 'scuttled' sounds nice, 'sunk' sounds better.

I wonder how it sounds when starting up or the scent and hue it might lend the air .

Walt these fiberglass cruiser boats are all over the canal, its become a novelty for these young council house couple to have.
You see them going up and down the canal with large groups of there friends sat on the roof playing noisy music, and treating them as mobile pubs.

Put the shed in a field, fit double glazing and B&Q kitchen and it becomes a "holiday home."
About £30k in Northumberland or Durham, excluding site fees.
