John Dytch was Dartline, he moved down the cut to Stourbridge in the mid nineties. Don't know if he's still about.

Spot on timing wise eggs and he would be a fair old age now and loved a beer. You lived or worked around that area eggs or just a small world on the waterways. Dartline rings a big bell and he was in partnership with another john who seemed the brains

Born n breed in Stoke and had a boat in Penkridge, Dytch was a boat builder, the other John, who's surname evades me was a business man that handled the sales and set up the hire fleet.

Spot on and always in the office.The boat yard was right on the lock and amazing place to work during the summer .Only time that other john would get involved would be on a saturday morning when hire fleet needed a small job doing before it could go out on hire, Stuck hatch or lock needed sorting.Small world eggs
