THE BUILDING OF 'SLOW PACE'


A 60’ semi-trad, reverse layout, bespoke designed narrowboat with shell built by Reeves
and fit-out by Heartwood Narrowboats.


This is a blog of the building and fit-out of the Narrowboat Slow Pace from base plate to launch.
The more recent postings are pictures taken during our cruising.


The base plate is laid!

W/C 7 April 2008
After much, discussion, decision making and planning the building of the shell gets underway at Reeves, our chosen boat builder. The pictures were kindly taken for us by Reeves.


The base plates!

The base plates are joined.

The stern plates are shaped into position.

The stern and first of the hull side plates are welded.
