    The Narrowboat

    created by NickWhittle on 2014.01.09

    Main Section
    Depiction of the classic Narrowboat, the kind that has transported goods and pleasure-seekers around the UK since the 1700s. Narrowboats are invariably colourful, so I mirrored this...sometimes people would say they were gaudy but there is a pride in being the most decorative and colourful of them all. The entire roof is hinged (2873 connecting 4625) to allow play access to the cabin. The cabin has a tiled floor and has not been decorated.

    RE-SPRAY!!

    The bow (front) of the barge is often seen quite bulbous and round, almost a throw-back to the old sea-faring ships of the 1800s which sported bowsprits. For a Narrowboat, an essential is a roof lamp for use in the hundreds of tunnels which run the length of the UK canal network, some over a mile long.

    The stern sports a rudder control, floor recess for engine/storage, which hinges open to the vertical. The brown shutters (60800) hinge open and there are steps down into the cabin.

    The proportions are scaled to a medium length Narrowboat, for ease of building (397 bricks) and commonplace recognition.
