Over the last couple of days we’ve heard of two more friends who have made the decision to sell their boats.
NB Valerie is up for sale. Jaq has made the very hard decision to move back to the States after living onboard Valerie for seven years, the last two without her best beloved Les. We finally got to meet Jaq in Nantwich earlier this year as the Beast from the East hit the country. Valerie was built for Les twelve years ago and has been a fulltime live aboard, she is being sold with everything you would need. A lovely very much loved boat.
Our friends boat NB Blackbird is still up for sale with ABNB. When we had NB Lillyanne (Lillian) we travelled as the Wasp with Blackbird on several occasions. Last year we joined together to cruise the Lancaster Canal. Bridget and Storm lived on board for several years cruising the network. They decided to move back to bricks and mortar earlier this year after finding their forever home back in East Yorkshire.
Tilly’s number one fan, Joa has put her boat up for sale, NB Beatrix. More of a holiday/weekend boat, able to sleep 6. Work is taking up too much time for them to be able to use her enough. A shame that we won’t be able to meet up somewhere on the cut, but I’m sure our paths will cross at some point.
