Rc canal boat

Hey guys so that time has come again to start building boats i took time out after the last build and built several planes but after losing and crashing a few I've decided enough is enough back to the boat builds.

Ive decided to start building a canal boat for years I've always been interested in canal boats and vision one day living on one, but for now i think a small scale will do.

I've got a few ideas rolling around in my head on plans but has anyone else built a canal boat before and has any pics of there construction of the hull or even any plans? theres not much on the net at all?

many thanks liam

Did a google for "model canal boat" and this was at the top of the list ( About 1,350,000 results (0.34 seconds) )- http://www.riversidemodels.co.uk/
Better be quick, though, the guy is about to retire.
Canal boats vary according to where the canal is located, my google tends to center on the UK.
At 1:12, a 48 foot boat just sits nicely across the rear footwell of a Renault Scenic.

I did recently contact Riverside Models to purchase one of their canal boat hulls, but was told they no longer shipped the the states . Orion Mouldings also makes a couple of 1/12th scale canal boat hulls.
