Hello all,

 I have been to view a 70ft narrowboat today & maybe will put in an offer.

 But my question is, I am thinking of using this for Birmingham, Coverntry & Walsall area only and not traveling around the country, due to family and work.

Will the size be a problem in lock sizes (size & fitting in) & as it’s just me and the dog on a CC how hard will it be geting this around the network on my own.

Thanks for the help.

You should be fine. You soon settle into a routine single handing and find what works best for you and boat. This will vary from one lock flight to the next so impractical to give across the board advice. You may have to choose winding holes carefully though.
