Henry H on test


The February edition of Canal Boat is out, and includes my boat review of Henry H.  This one is a bit unusual in several ways -- it's a refit of an old shell, it's only just over 40ft long, and the front half appears to be under cloths.  Some people might know the owners, Sarah (aka Greygal) and Andy.

A good review...a lot of money spent on it and nice to see such investment.

My bank manager is yet to be convinced! My thanks to Adam and photographer Andy for giving us such a super memento of a long but hugely enjoyable project. Now for some serious cruising!

Yes

A really good review of a really good boat, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Sarah, where do all the hounds fit in?

Must say, CB is now my preferred read to the other one, where this month Adam's rival seriously argued that a nine foot wide boat could navigate narrow canals.

Errr….

All the best for 2014

Ah, well, we send them on holiday with the Indigo Dream!

ooooh - actually bought this one last week drawn in by the boat on the front - always tempted by something similar (also this

and now I realise there's connections...

lovely boat!
