I am planning to buy a canal boat. I shall use crowd funding to finance the project. I intend to offer low cost holidays on board the narrow boat in exchange for the money to purchase the craft. I am still in the research stage at this moment in time, but if you have any ideas or would (with no commitment at this time) declare an interest in investing in the idea, please do leave me a message in comments.
