Post Subject: Open Canal Boat

I am seeking information regarding these 2 open canal barges that I spotted moored in The Castlefield canal Basin in Manchester. As can be seen from the image there are some markings on the barges which may help someone to identify them. Any help would be useful. Thanks in advance.. Barry

Barry, the pictures displayed on the forum are so small as to be virtually useless for identification of those boats. Perhaps if you email it to the editor he might find a space to publish your question in the magazine. However if its a mobile phone or older digi-camera photo they may not be of a sufficiently high resolution. Tony Brooks

Thank you for your reply Tony, I can see your point here. A much larger picture of the open canal boats in question can be seen here http://www.canalsandwaterways.me.uk/page2.html the larger image is about half way down the page. Hopefully these are of a sufficient resolution for someone to identify the vessels.
