Post Subject: Outboard engine powered 23foot approx steel narrow boat

I saw an almost new short (about 23feet) narrowboat with a honda outboard engine for power recently but do not know the manufacturer, does anyone know who manufactures these short steel outboard powered narrow boats please.

Dear Mark, Makers of such things come and go and I am not sure a well looked after, recently repainted boat would not look "almost new". If it's for sale ask the vendor or if you see it again ask the owners. The two common builders of small steel boats were Springer (water bug) & Sievwright (Owl). Midway boats also seem to have built them recently. Tony Brooks
