Captain's locker for narrowboaters

Captain's locker for narrowboaters
£82.00 1 Available
Love this


For storing standard 1L bottles of whisky (the size of the majority of 1L bottles of spirit on supermarket shelves). Designed to be screwed to an internal vertical bulkhead or cabin divider in your narrowboat saloon or galley. Height 554mm, width 150mm, depth 140mm. Made from 12mm pine thick boards. finished with Danish oil which gives a clear matt moisture resistant finish allowing the wood grain to be seen. Designed to echo the old narrowboat galley cupboards with its curved top, the locker can be over coated by folk artists or painters of 'roses and castles'. I only have one left in this series and it may have a different wood grain to the one shown in the pictures.


Mr Shipshape says "This is where the restorative elixir is kept. You put the top of the bottle in first and drop the bottom into the retaining ring. This means when you hit the bank or take a hard knock the bottle will not burst out onto the floor. In consequence it's only suitable for standard 1L bottles of spirit and standard 750ml bottles of wine and not shorter bottles. The tops of the latter will be below the retaining rail and may burst out when you hit the bank. You have been warned". Huge scope for imaginative decoration here. A nice retirement present.
