  1. What was his name? We did loads of research on her at Gloucester docks (where all the company records are kept). Unfortunately my ex has them all the history ie. names of captains and crew members. The paint work sounds great. Still got the 2 door bedroom? I thought that design was inspired!

  2. What the old Rayburn? I loved that, she certainly had a chimney flue originally! What colour is she now? Do you have any pics? Did you know that she was used during the war to train women who took over the transportation of goods up and down the Leeds Liverpool?

  3. This is so exciting. We owned her between 1999 and 2004. We brought her across the Channel in 2001 (I think). She went out at Boston and entered at Calais (32 hours!)

  4. Hi! Are you the guy who is on the Leeds Liverpool Shortboat Nidd? I'm used to own the beautiful old girl. How is she?

  5. Leeds & Liverpool shortboat "NIDD"

    Hi Graham, Sorry I've only just found this site! My ex-husband and I bought Nidd in 1999 (I think), we gave her her last cruise the length of the Leeds Liverpool Canal in 2000. We then took her to France (quite correct that she crossed the channel - with no problems). Went out at Boston and arrived in Calais. We did some research on her history at Gloucester docks, and, for me, the most exciting thing is that she was used as a training boat for woman, who would be taking cargos up and down the canal during the war. I loved living on her (for 5 years), she's a beautiful old girl, and was gutted when I learned that she was festering in St Jean de Losne after we had sold her. I'm so pleased that she is being used and hope you love her as much as I do! Sally Garrington I would love to see a picture of her (my husband took them all when he left!)
