The NB Tambourine Home Page (286 words)
These web pages are about the designing and construction of 'Tambourine', a 50-foot narrowboat built for us by Associated Cruisers in 1998.
We hope to add more features to the site soon, including Tambourine's cruising log from 1999 to date (illustrated and uncensored!), some pages about her predecessor (N.B.Drifter) and - now that we've found the missing log-book - Drifter's predecessor, M.C. Elizabeth.
We built the site because we like looking at other peoples' boaty web-sites so decided to try and make one of our own.
