More info on the sad wooden boat Flycatcher comes from the Narrowboatworld forums...
If it is the case as Ralph off Grey Nomad ponders the owner is aboard another boat then the story does not have quite the sad end, but it is still a piece of history off the canals.
The fact there is some story but not the 100% full picture heartens me in a very strange way. The towpath telegraph is often mentioned and the casual friendly informed medium it represents knocks the information superhighways clinical exposure of all fact and figures into the bushes. Its almost the over the garden fence communication of yesteryear, makes me feel all nostalgic, long may it continue as it is the friendliest face of communication.
