Payment went through on Monday, we now own Iron Butterfly! Driving down from York to Rugby boats was fairly uneventful. Did we have any doubts? Ooh lots of them and as we arrive and see her they all disappear.
Moving aboard we realise there is so much storage space and a car full of bits are soon absorbed into the bowels or belly of the beast.
A mountain of instruction manuals await. Rather than set off we say overnight at Stowhill wharf and decide a meal at the appropriately named The Narrowboat Inn. Excellent, we highly recommend!
