Canal Boat Weirdness.

Saw this on the Grand Union Canal at Croxley near Watford, yesterday. I don't know what to make of it and can't imagine what it's like inside the boat:



Though I think that for total weirdness, this one I took some years ago trumps it:

Re: Canal Boat Weirdness.

People have asked what happened to the head in the last image. I've told them that it's probably in the pot, making soup!

Re: Canal Boat Weirdness.

Don't take too many of these types of pictures - it may affect your photography health.

Two top shots, Jim. I love 'em, the first is ingenious!

He's got a long way to fall before he reaches my level of photographic decadence.

Re: Canal Boat Weirdness.

Great and unusual pictures, well spotted, although you could hardly miss them could you
The boat with the car on, am I wrong in thinking that the boat goes forward, making the car appear to be reversing, or is the stern of the boat pointed too? Seems a bit ar$e about face to me, although I do love the concept.
