Summer is on the way and anyone who loves boats can look forward to the usual line-up of boat festivals. If you enjoy real ale, painted canalware, live music, boats and bunting we hope to see you at a festival this year. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about buying or selling a boat and will be sponsoring the Canalway Cavalcade and Rickmansworth Canal Festival.
