Spade is a historic narrowboat.originally built in 1929 with a riveted iron hull and an elm bottom. She was an open, horse-drawn, butty.
In the 1980's she had the base replaced with 10mm steel, the superstructure added and was shortened from 70ft to 62ft. She was fitted with a 1945 Vintage Gardner engine.
She has good sized windows and two side hatches in the living space and another two in the engine room, which is full height.
The paintwork is in need of attention, particularly the traditional scumbling which has deteriorated. The paintwork is, however, still good enough to protect the boat.
The hull was blacked last year.
