Ethel on the Coventry

Here's another boat seen on the Coventry Canal in April, rather longer than yesterday's offering.

This is Ethel, sans rudder, at Streethay Wharf. Isn't the signwriting on the stern flashes wonderful?

The cabin paintwork has suffered; unfortunately it looks as though the timbers underneath are deteriorating.

The Historic Narrow Boat Club gives the following details: Ethel was built as a butty with an iron hull by Yarwoods in 1930.
