Post Subject: unusual Narrowboat

On our tour along the Four-Counties-Ring in 2011 we passed a boatyard with a unique narrowboat waiting for its restoration. The shape is appealing to me and I would like to learn more about it and maybe its history. And particularly I would love to see more photos of it (maybe now in restored condition). So far I just found out it was at Industry Narrowboats on the Shropshire Union Canal. Can anyone help?

This was asked on the Canal World Internet Forum a few days ago and you are far more likely to get the correct answer there. I too have wondered about that boat but not enough to phone or call into the yard to ask them. It seems to have been around their yard for many years. I do not know the answer so I will leave this open in the hope another reader may know about it.

Yes, I also asked in the Canal World Forum but without success (same with eMail to Industry Narrowboats). Because I´m not native spraking I am reluctant with calling them. I just tried via Facebook. As the boat is very unique I thought it might be worth a story.

I just got an answer via Facebook: It´s a replica of an old Bridgewater tug. It´s still not finished but in a better shape than on my older fotos.
