Interesting boats spotted



Daringly different these two and both of them spotted on the Chester branch of the Shroppie.
Emily Anne, a modern steam engined narrowboat with its own, purpose built steam power plant and Turnothworld, an elegant replica Bridgewater Packet built by Roger Fuller.

Wasn't the Roger Fuller boat a show winner a decade or so ago?

Yes, She won the Marion Monk at Worcester, along with the Calor trophy for best galley, despite being a gas-free boat.
She has just received an excellent re-paint and a few modifications from Staurt Hodges in Market Drayton.
