Final Days

Nearly there! Saloon shelves, which incorporate sections for the TV, a magazine rack, note our star motif, and corner units beside the steps. We have lots of books at home - need to get rid of some - but will have plenty on the boat eventually I expect. Captain's chairs and stools are waiting to go on board.

The cratch cover is also on its way and all will be assembled in the bows prior to launch. Flooring also has to be laid. We have chosen Amtico as it is so hard wearing, and looks really good. It took us ages to decide on the colour and style but hope that it will add to the look for Epiphany.

The galley is looking great, sink, wine rack, oven and hob and larder. I particularly like the drawer fronts and clever handles. The stern doors with the blue/cream design are just as we hoped. This photo looking from the bows, into the interior is only possible on dry land and is really effective - congrats and thanks again, Jon, We have a wonderful collection of photos to look back on and what a difference 4 months makes!

So now we wait for launch day, hoping it will be fine weather. We will have Bath Narrowboats checking her and "snagging" (I am sure there will be very little of this due to their experience) for a couple of days and then she will be all ours!

My blog will soon change character as we catalogue our journeys in Epiphany so we hope you will continue to "log on"


  1. She looks absolutely beautiful. I hope you have years of happy and enjoyable cruising on board this terrific narrowboat.

    Best Wishes,


  2. The boat is really coming along very well! You must be delighted! I am really enjoying all the photographs especially that you picture the details.

  3. wonderful! When will you be moving aboard?!
