Lurid yellow narrowboat lacks an ess
Just above Knowle Locks on the GU is Knowle Hall Wharf, home of Stephen Goldsbrough Boats. No-one passing yesterday can have failed to notice Mr. Goldsbrough's boat number 133, nb Lila.
Obviously made to order, with a glazed front end with full height side hatches and in a sort of hi-vis yellow. Or is it radioactive green? Shall we settle for lurid?
Before the name on the bow is what looks like Arabic script.
Here is a side view of the boat.
Note the sign on the building behind:
And now the builder's name on the boat:
I wonder how long it will take Mr. Goldsbrough to notice the signwriter's small omission.
(Do I need to spell it out? That's Goldsbrough with an "s").
