Sapphire, the boat pictured above was reviewed by Graham Booth in the Waterways World mag some time ago and I spotted it at Great Hayward on Tuesday. This is a boat built by the owner from scratch and not in anyway orthodox in design. We were about to leave Great Hayward on and I went to check the availability of the lock. Sapphire was in the lock going down ( the same way we wanted to go) so I lent a hand and was soon joined by a lady whose boat was coming up. It wasn't until this second boat was leaving the lock that I happened to glance at its name and low and behold it was Morpheus, Barn Owl Narrowboat number 7!
