Star of stage and screen hires a narrowboat.

We love living on our boat and are always so happy to welcome new people on to the water. So it is a warm welcome to Keira Knightley who is hiring a canal boat in London.
It seems over the years many a star from stage and screen has hired or owned a boat. In 2004 Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart hired a narrowboat and crusied the Llangollen Canal. Timothy West and his wife Prunella Scales own their own boat. There are many others who enjoy the tranquilty of the water. Do not be fooled into thinking that boating on the canals is just for the rich and famous. It is not, we are not rich or famous and yet love the life like thousands of others. It was thought that there are over 30,000 boats on the system. Most of them are in marina's for most of the year, which is just as well, because if they all came out on to the system, no one would be moving. The waterways would end up like the M1 or M25, clogged with traffic and stressed our steerers. ;0).
