Thanks to everyone who supported the Boat Share Shows

Despite the rain on the Saturday, the Autumn Boat Share Show at Overwater last weekend proved successful.  As always, it attracted a good number of people with a serious interest in boatshare.

The RNLI Festival, running from Saturday evening amd through the Sunday, was also another great success.  The raft race around the marina was very popular with visitors.

This was the last Boat Share Show for which I will be directly involved in the organisation - I've handed that role over to the boat management companies.  Hopefully we will know soon about the dates and arrangements for next year's shows.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped to make the Shows in which I've been involved successful - particularly the management companies, our hosts at Braunston and Overwater and, of course, the many visitors who have come to the Shows to find out about the benefits of boatshare and have gone away as owners.

This website will continue - and I have offered the management companies any support I can give in publicising the Shows here.  We will continue to maintain our comprehensive list of narrowboat shares on offer by monitoring the BCBM,, Carefree Cruising, J D Boat Services and Ownashare websites.  Many of our Show visitors have commented on how useful they've found this site, and I'm delighted that so many are now enjoying their boating as share owners.
