K&A Boaters’ Code of Conduct

An independent initiative developed by the K&A boating community

As live-aboard boaters the canal is our home. The way we lead our lives can make the canal a wonderfully colourful and interesting place for people to visit. For us, to share the canal, the towpath and to show consideration for others is very important. It demonstrates how vibrant our community and the canal are. We hope that if we all try to follow this simple code of conduct we will continue to build good relations between us and people who do not live on board, and there will be even better co-operation and tolerance between us and others who use the canal .
