Think this might be the boat for me.

Would be good to know if the mast can come down easily so it can motor up and down UK & EU canals.

@MinimalClick if you're interested in coastal *and* inland canal cruising I'd suggest looking at traditional boat types. At least for some inspiration. Especially some of the Dutch flat bottom types are surprisingly able and seaworthy with very little draft and easy to lower rigging.

@MinimalClick also, let me suggest George Buehler's The Troller Yacht Book as another source of practical wisdom:

In a nutshell: have a look at the types local fishermen have been using traditionally to make their living. These guys know their seas, coasts and canals ... #sailing #boats #boatyard


@lskh great call. That book looks great. Thanks!
