Yup...quite ugly...the black paint needs to be replaced by golden yellow.

Original comme bateau.
Very nicely done up...
I don't think so!
Some friends of ours recently rented one of these, and she said she was a surprised at how much work it was! But they took turns at the controls - and had a good time!

This is a such a great way to have a good time. Like Elizabeth said, it is a lot of work, I often saw them 'struggle' at some locks to pass. Wonderful picture.
It makes me want to hitch a ride, Alan!

A hobby that is becoming more & more popular. Not my cup of tea though..

Not by any means, Alan, but I would have to walk alongside
What a superb scene Alan.
I enjoy seeing narrow boats in Droiters, they add so much
Our next door neighbours are part owners of a narrow boat and use it several weeks through the year. This makes it look a fine pasttime but the locks must be hard work!
i do not care that much as long as she is watertight, Alan!
