Read somewhere that before the weekend warriors took over the canals that the narrow boat makers would go to scrapyards and obtain the Diesel engines from scrap cement mixers for a new lease of life as the power units. These were the old chuggy Lister single cylinder cracklers. Only doing 4 MPH but real load movers.
