    Vehicle : 9-3 Wagon

    Trim : Turbo Edition

    Engine : TID (1.9 16v)

    Year : 2010

    Mileage : 137000

    Default Well this weekend I have been mostly driving this.

    Parents have hired a Widebeam canal boat for the week, these are double the width of a narrow boat and this particular one had double bedroom both with on suit toilets and showers, proper hot water radiators, fully working kitchen and living room with 2 sofa's. Totally not what I expected when I arrived after work at the canal side. Well as they've got it for another week I took the helm for the two days we were aboard.

    So try parking this beast LOL. Thats the old man by the way, not me



    Now this is some bonnet to look over



    Bingley 5 rise locks



    Bit of a bum clencher the first time through Locks.






    And after all the hard work of the locks its nice to just relax in peace and quiet without and distractions.

    Bet that was a great Break Steve

    We use the Crinan canal all the time for biking and walking with the kid's and its uber peaceful but a canal boat would be something else!

    He did not crash it. He just "Barged" his way through.

    Nice, always fancied having a barge holiday.

    Bet the stopping distance on that thing is a bit scary! lol
