Boats, boats, boats... What the canals are all about. You can get on the water for an hour, a day or a couple of weeks, but owning your own boat takes you right to the heart of canal life.
You'll find boatbuilders across the canal network, and you'll see them showing off their new shiny boats at festivals and boat shows too. Crick, the annual Boat Show held each May, is your chance to wander through dizzy numbers of brand new narrowboats.
Cruiser or trad stern, josher bow or tug, specifications are all part of the joy of having a boat built.
