No wonder boat prices are dropping

I'm ok, not fallen in or gassed myself, just life gets in the ways sometimes. I think that has been the longest I have been without a post, but I'll catch up with the blog this week.

The reason for the post title.... click here and be concerned

I thought prices were deflated because of the housing market, in reality those in the know understand the cruising possibility of boats in the future will be severely restricted because of the terrible waste of resource and opportunity BW executive have engaged in over the last few years. Simple really if the canals are not maintained they will shut to boaters. OK for fishermen and cyclists, now we know why it is canal not canals in the new trust title. I recon at this rate my grand plans for a retirement cruise will never be realised.

I think the best advice is not to look at Narrowboat World. Leave them and their unremitting negativity alone. They never have a good word about anything, which makes you wonder why they don't find a pastime they find more enjoyable.

I cant see the network shrinking back but it may get a bit rough round the edges - actually I sometimes think its all a bit too maintained in the central section, and thats why I seem to spend my holiday getting away to the bits rarely travelled. I confidently predict that we will still be boating in 20, 30 or even 40 years if our lives, health and corrosion are spared.
