Traditional adornment, like the old school tie..

I have been looking at the way bows are decorated and wondering what Caxton will look like. The first picture is the bow on a Norton Canes boat. As with Barnowl Narrowboats, Dave Moore decorates these boats.

And here is the bow on a Braidbar Boat.

And here is the bow on River Phantom, a Barnowl boat also painted by Dave Moore.

This is the traditional style of bow decoration that Caxton is likely to be adorned with. This is also on a Reeves shell so the dimensions and shape of the bow are correct.

Thanks to my invaluable help Lesley has now bought some stylish material for Caxton's seating in the dinette. I am Val her best friend!
