    Just bought these photos. In the 2nd photo you can see the same boat but no ID on it yet.

    That's a 30 cwt. Ford WOT3 on the right, isn't it ? The bike in the top photo looks like a Norton...but a difficult angle and not quite crisp enough to look at the detail.

    The boat looks like a upper Thames passenger cruise boat.
    With about 18inches freeboard not a boat I would like to do a channel crossing in !

    If it's not "Ourthe" then perhaps a sister to it, so probably a Belgian inland crusing boat. I can't find out anything more about it though.

    It is very similar to the Outhe specially the cabin top so agree must be from the same err ....stable
