It occurred to us that we have only really posted pictures of the outside of Anticus and most of you have no idea of what lies inside. Indeed more than a few of our friends have asked – how do you cook?, do you have to use public toilets?, isn’t it a pain making the bed up every day?, and other such questions. So we thought you might like to see inside:
I hope this has given you a bit of an insight and assured you that we are ok and not having to use public toilets, live on sandwiches and wrap up in multiple layers when it gets chilly!
Anticus is actually one of the smaller barges in the marina at 50 ft (15m) long and 14ft (4.2m) wide. Some boats here are 30m long and have 3 or 4 bedrooms, we are happy with one bedroom, one bathroom, and two toilets, but we chose it to suite the two of us and our dog. The settee in the lounge is a bed-settee, and the dining area converts to a double bed, so if any of you fancy a visit, let us know.
For those whose interests are not purely domestic, I’ll publish a post on the engine room and the engineering that goes into the boat soon.
