Not quite 20 Questions

I'm sure we've all seen the emails that used to go around asking you to fill in 20 questions to "get to know" your friends better.  I thought I'd do a little "survey" relating to our preferences for what we'd like in a narrowboat.  We'd love to know about your boat.  I often go back to the beginning of blogs to see if it tells us anything about the boat itself.  Often there's not a thing!

I hope you'll either post the list on your own blog or put the answers in a comment to this post.
