Bye-bye nb Caxton…

It was a sad day today when I read the last blog update from nb Caxton.  Several months ahead of nb Windsong in build, we followed her build faithfully, feeling a special affinity as she is Barnowl’s No 9 Boat, and we are Beacon’s No 9 boat.  As we got to know Lesley and Joe better, Lesley and I found that a lot of our idea’s of what we wanted from a narrowboat coincided.  However, Lesley and Joe fairly soon discovered that they wanted something different, and nb Yarwood was born.

So farewell nb Caxton – if and when we see her again she will have a different name – nb Manley Ferry. We hope her new owners enjoy her – we will give you a wave when we see you out on the cut.  We will enjoy following, and hopefully sharing in some of nb Yarwood’s adventures.  See you on the Fens Lesley and Joe!
