Bletchley & Argus

These boats were owned and operated by Pete Hawker for many years. He used them for delivering solid fuels and diesel all over the canal network. He has also undertaken deliveries on our behalf, and joined us on our own trips when extra capacity was needed.

Pete is a fine exponent in the art of getting both boats around on his own, but generally had a steerer for the butty, when loaded, on the narrow canals at least. He is the most laid-back boater that I have ever met.

Bletchley has now been sold and is at work making fuel deliveries on the River Nene. See separate page for Bletchley

Argus has also been sold on to new owners.
