Your recent holiday on Eagle - Tawny Eagle from Blackwater Meadow Marina

The boat itself was really good. It handled well and was comfortable. The loss of 1 star is due to a poor handover when collecting the boat and when I reported a small fault that needed an engineers assistance at 9am the engineer didn't arrive until 3:30pm after another call from me to ask what was going on. Also the prop shaft seal was leaking and the bilge pump kept coming on.

Your recent holiday on Grebe - Horned Grebe from Gailey Wharf

We enjoyed the holiday very much though travelling the whole of the Black Country ring in 7 days leaves little time for stop-offs. We did manage both the Black Country living museum and Shugborough Hall but it would have been better to have two clear days to use for the visits.

Your recent holiday on Swallow - Red Rumped Swallow from Goytre Wharf

Excellent boatyard and very nice boat for 4 people. It would however we felt, be cramped for 6, and even more so for the 8 it can sleep if you use the drop down bunks, unless quite of few of these are children. The canal itself is beautiful, particularly when you hit a week of great weather as we did. Numerous very nice and inexpensive pubs along the way. Very friendly wildlife (see photo).
