from the editor’s desk

Dear Readers,

Welcome to the Autumn Edition of CanalsOnline Magazine! You will find a wealth of new editorials from our regular contributors, and new features from Excel Coal, CoalCage and Stoke Art Pottery (creators of very special gifts for boat owners...).

You can also enter our Free Prize Draw. This season the prize (and there are 5 of them!) is a midi bilge filter from Bilgeaway. These will become more and more essential as measures against water pollution get tighter. So well worth having, and easy to fit.

Finally, don't forget that our canal & river guides are always under development. So if you spot anything that should be added, do let me know (by email or through the Active Cruisers page).

Happy reading!
