Post Subject: Seeking 50/50 boat share partner

We are a mid-50âs retired married couple living in Thailand looking to spend 4 to 6 months on UK canals starting next year. Would consider a 50/50 ownership using the boat for 4 consecutive months continues cursing either March to June or July to November and splitting purchase, maintenance and winter mooring costs with likeminded co-owner. Preferring a full length boat total purchase value of say GBP65K to 100K. If anyone overseas or UK based may be interested in such a venture we would love to hear from you. Cheers Mick & Winnie

I hope that you fins people to share with you but what struck me about your message is that you specify "a full length" boat. Are you aware that a full length boat, being between 70 and 72 feet long, will place some limits on your cursing area. Even if it fits some of the wide beam northern locks it may involve entering the lock backwards and then putting the boat diagonally across the lock. A "go anywhere without problem" narrowboat will be around 58 ft long.

Hi Tony and thank you for your reply. Ideal length for us would be 65-70ft sacrificing some canals for space but if a shared boat we would be flexible. Cheers Mick & Winnie
