We had a lovely couple of e-mails from Tony Corrie in South Africa, recounting some of his memories of buying a working narrowboat in the 1967. He bought a wooden motor called Rosmary from Gas Street Basin, Birmigham from a company call A.J Clarke. The boat had it's engine removed when he purchased so his first job with the help of his brother & a friend was to bow haul the boat down to Stourbridge. At Stourbridge the boat was docked and repairs commenced.
Does anyone know any further history regarding Rosemary? It would be good to know if she is still about today.
