I should have made it clear that it's not for a boat (if only I had a
boat!) - it's for Joe's wedding web site. I would like to make the site
title in narrowboat style.
Thanks for the tip - I'll hunt down a copy of Tuscan and see how it
looks. It may indeed be *too* fancy, but it's worth a try.

This is a 'kewl' service if you have an image of the font, I've found
it very useful.

Yes, it's excellent! Finding an appropriate sample to start with is the
problem - few boats seem to be photographed square-on to the lettering.
However, Jeff Dennison has recommended Vineta, which I think may do the
job very nicely.
