Hi everybody, saying Hi just joined the group, Hope everybody is staying safe, I would like a idea of what others think, okay Myself and my partner are both 65yrs Old and retire very very shortly, we are pretty fit and would like to spend our time on the Canals of the uk, As we are both 65yrs Does anybody think being 65yrs old is too old to start living on a Narrow Boat we would cruise most of the time, but would like to moor up in a Marine for a week or two before moving on, is this possible and is it a leisure mooring. Kind Regards, Can’t wait to hear your views.

Hi Pete, my career has come to a rather abrupt end due to the Covid situation, I worked for British Airways for 35 years and will get the statutory redundancy, having traveled around the world all my life, job and Dad being in the forces, I can’t imagine sitting in one place. I have looked at canal boats for the last few years, of course it’s a big step but you only live once, I’m 60, feel as fit as anyone, within reason and to be honest living on a canal boat involves physical work, that appeals to me, too old at 65, never !
