Dynamic Photographer and Journalist Tony Jones gets down to the nity grity and asks 'what is the real cost of owning a Narrowboat?'.

Oxon featured on Channel 5
In March 2009 we were contacted by Twofour Broadcast in regard to re-painting the superb cruising Hotel and Restaurant boat the African Queen for the Channel Five programme 'The Hotel Inspector'.

We gave the boat a complete repaint using Blakes paints.
The programme about the African Queen airs on August 10th 2009.
