General comments by vendor

Friendly group of people who are willing to help one another if needed. 

I have loved holidaying on Madge, she is a lovely cosy boat, easy to handle, and very pleasing on the eye!

I bought the share with my cousin, who unfortunately has developed serious rumatoid arthritis, and finds it nearly impossible to navigate the steps on the boat, as well as help on the locks, which has led him to have to give up going out on her, hence the share is now sadly up for sale.
