Impressive!

Do they sell those boats by the foot?

"Tranquillity" - very nice, I imagine a deck chair on top with a little RC seaplane could be very tranquil.

BTW: Its a long bugger - I am guessing that "U"-turns are out of the question on those canals?

I've seen him do it - I must admit I was most impressed with Gary's control of such an overlong implement.... :lol:

Though the hinge in the middle helped of course.

7ft wide and 60ft long. Every few km there are widened areas on the canal where you can turn, although it can be a right bugger in a wind!
