Narrowboats

Narrowboats are very special boats. Designed as part of a water transport system that flourished,,,until the railway system made them obsolete. Now the canal system is almost 100% used for leisure boating. Their size ranges from 30 foot to 70 foot. Most common seems to be 65 foot long. Max width should be 7 foot, most are 6 feet ten and a half inches wide.
