Southern Cross

Southern Cross is Ryan Dimmocks’ pride and joy. He has carried coal on our behalf, and is regularly to be seen on the Grand Union Canal south of Stoke Bruerne delivering coal and diesel for Jules Fuels.

Ryans biggest problem to date has been the agonising decision as to how the boat name is depicted on the cabin side; “Southern Cross” or “Southern X”. The general consensus among the “experts” is that “Southern X” is the correct way to sign-write the boat, so Ryan has instructed his sign-writer to write “Southern Cross”! I agree with his choice.
