I love 'em, too.

Walking with friends near Kidsgrove last weekend they took us past the Harecastle Tunnel on the Trent and Mersey. It's a bit scary.

Here, have a sken...........

Always wanted one but have never managed to justify it.  Same problem as a caravan for me.  I would need to use it constantly justify the investment but there is so much else to see and places to go.  Evocative pic none the less.

I could have easily lived on a Narrow boat or a widebeam, or better, a converted Dutch or Belgian barge if I were younger. I don't suppose it would be too much fun if you were of a very advanced age with possible ill health and no where else to live though, could well be a hard existance to endure methinks.
