Still agonising over final choice of narrowboat builder. I'm 90% certain which one to choose. How do I break it to the other? Such nice people. I now have formal quotes from both, with numbers and words to support same. Big numbers. It's a certainty I will only ever see this much money in the same place once in my lifetime (without having it earmarked for something important like my retirement or a home).
I still want to hear a cocooned diesel engine to see just how quiet they are. But it looks as though the earliest I can do that is at the Crick Boat Show where the vendors (Beta Marine) are likely to have one on demonstraion. Oh well, roll on late May bank holiday weekend.
