There's a nice Christmassy feel to the front cover of the January issue of Canal Boat, which is out today. Inside is my review of Paris, the Amber Boat which won an award at the IWA. At £74,000, it's by far the cheapest boat I've tested for CB, and I was surprised by how good it was. It's not an aficionado's boat, but for anyone who just wants to get afloat cheaply it's worth a look.

The December issue of Canal Boat is out, and contains my review of Fiddlesticks Free, by Cauldon Boat Builders based in Stoke on Trent. This was a quality boat, full of good ideas. And it was a lovely sunny day, in spite of a downpour just before we started.

The arrival of the new issue of Canal Boat was met with more than the usual excitement here. It contains my first fully-fledged magazine article, a boat test of 4Evermoore, one of the public's favourite boats from the Crick Show. It looks great, thanks to the excellent photographs by David Oakes, taken at the Tixall Wide.
