I sell canal boats acting as a broker for private owners. I have been involved with the inland waterways of Great Britain as a boat owner for 30 years. For some of that time I wrote a series of articles for various magazines about our travels around the canals and rivers of England and Wales, and subsequently about our travels on the waterways of Ireland. I still own a boat - my fifth in 30 years - and live on it with my partner, Helen. While I sell boats from our wharf in rural Northamptonshire (and also from a second outlet in Cheshire) Helen has a proper job as a finance analyst in the waste industry. Some think the life is idyllic; others think that it would be too restrictive living a space 70ft x 7ft. I like it. To each their own.I also like playing guitar and singing - one of my heroes as a player is Doc Watson and if I was one tenth as good as he is I would be a happy bunny. My other passion is good food. Locally sourced wherever possibly cooked simply but well. If I could change one thing in my life, it might have been having an Italian instead of an English mother. But then, I would probably weigh three stone more than I do! I love my mother anyway.......it was just a passing thought.I could carry on, but it seems a little self-obsessive, so I'll stop. For now.
