… And we a not even slightly smug about it … We are so happy to announce that yesterday everything went through with the Purchase of our wonderful narrow home and we are now super, over-the-moon, beaming-from-ear-to-ear, happy boat owners.
Would you all like to meet her and see how beautiful she is? To be honest we don’t care, like any proud parents who eagerly show you 300 snaps of their babies first poop, we are going to show you anyway.
So we would like to introduce you all to our gorgeous Narrow Boat Fantine.
Yes we know, shes beautiful and we love her, and we are hoping she will love us too! For those of you who aren’t already pulling the (My god when will these new parents stop banging on about it) face, here are vital stats.
She’s a 2003 Les Wilson, 57ft Traditional Style Narrow Boat, with a racy Beta 38 Engine. Internally she is pretty ship shape, with us only wanting to make small cosmetic changes to fit our tastes. Time to wallop out the beloved Salty Peat paint!
We are heading down this weekend to start with this, and whilst she is now officially our baby, she can’t leave the Marina until all the essential safety works and Blacking, have been finished, which all being well should be the middle of March.
A very happy James & Kirsty
PS did we mention we now have a boat? Yes? Oh well you probably haven’t seen this picture? She looks so pretty here 🙂
