26,000 visitors expected to attend
Twenty canal boats each weighing up to 34 tonnes are to be craned into Crick Marina in preparation for the 20th Crick Boat Show that takes place later this month.
The craning in will be carried out by MJT Cranes which specialises in lifting and transporting canal boats.
The boats have a combined weight of around 620 tonnes and range in length from 52ft to 70ft.
Crick Boat Show is organised by Waterways World in partnership with the Canal & River Trust and Crick Marina.
More than 26,000 visitors are expected to attend.
“Every year Crick Boat Show, the UK’s biggest inland waterways festival, celebrates our fantastic network of canals and rivers,” said Matthew Symonds, national boating manager for the Canal & River Trust. ““Research shows spending time by water makes us all healthier and happier and we believe that waterways have the power to make a real difference to people’s lives.”
The show takes place at Crick Marina, Northamptonshire, from May 25 – 27 2019 and will include around 250 exhibitors with dozens of boats, free boat trips, live music, children’s activities and a real ale marquee.
