Thanks, Andrew, duly added to my boatroll. I never added Minnow's original website because it had no RSS feed.

New Boat blog! http://fmcminnow.blogspot.com/ Sarah on Chertsey has already blogged about it.

Oh god, I've just realised - this must be what a chertsey looks like!

As mentioned, Serpens is a Small Northwich butty built at Yarwoods, and breifly starred in The Bargee during the scene where they were waiting for orders at Bulls Bridge.

It was recently (in the past year or so) advertised for sale at Harral brokerage when it was paired with a modern but trad style boat. It's now been sold on twice. I last spotted the boat near Wheelock on the T&M.
