Interesting photo. Reminds me of the nursery rhyme, "Old Mother Hubbard"
Ive been following this lad and his boat for the last two years now.
He was at Burscough for some time getting it ready, then last month he was at Appley Bridge locks and now Red Rock.
It looks better from the front showing his piano.
My boat was always short of storage space, but this one............?
Nice one Eddie,who lives in a boat like that?.old draws.
Interesting!. I'd love a toot inside!
As an ex boater,and sailor this gets my vote.
Down the by wash with elf and softy.
What kind of licence would be needed for that kind of boat?
When we had a share in a narrow boat, we never had more than 1 week. it was too claustrophobic for us to stay longer. Had some wonderful times though, especially along this canal.
Looks a bit top heavy, I wonder what it's like to sail on.
Lovely photo Eddie.best shot this year
Kath,I was thinking the very same thing...I'd sooner look at that than Tracy Enims bed or whatever her name is.
"Best shot this year"..where have you been hiding, Twitter. It's very unusual, doesn't look safe, not for me!
I'm puzzled! Does this vessel move? Or is it pulled from place to place. Is it legal. Not trying to be rude if you own it, so unusual. I thought the canal authorities were really strict. Forgive my ignorance. I thought there were all kinds of rules and regulations a boat/barge/houseboat needed to follow to be on the canal. Clearly I'm wrong.
Maureen - I agree Emin's bed is a load of pretentious rubbish but it's made her rich. it's the Emperor's New Clothes syndrome. I'd say a lot of effort has gone into this boat and a good example of recycling too.
I like the life belts on the roof!
Theres some better photos of that boat here.
If it was April 1st, it would be Fools day.
Who is Tracy Enims?
Let expressionism rule....!!!
Good luck to the owners....well done you...!!!!
Fred,she goes under the title of an artist..after breaking up with her boyfriend she composed !!!! an unmade
bed scattered with dirty underwear,used condoms and all sorts of rubbish,Charles Sattchi bought it for one point something million pounds,he's just auctioned it off for
over two million I think..it makes me very angry that someone like that is supposedly an artist...it's rubbish.
Ive heard of a dos house ...but never a dos boat...
Thanks Maureen. Sad thing is when she drops dead that rubbish will be worth even more. That Charles Satchi should be inside anyways..
If we lived next door to a house in that condition, some of you would have a much different comment to make. after saying that, it would suit some folk.
Looks like a huclbeery fin boat house.
