We are about to start the build of our new narrowboat and this blog will record the progress of that build. We have been full time 'liveaboards' for the last two and a half years so we are pouring that valuable experience with an equal measure of simple desire into the design of our new boat/home.
The build will start in July 2011. We have 'signed up' the hull builder and the boat fitter, drawings are done, layout planned and engine choice made.
The hull will be based on that of a small Northwich trader, built at Northwich on the R.Weaver By WJ Yarwood, hence the name of our new boat.
