Hi Jane, Unfortunately like a lot of things in life this is a compromise. The majority of narrow canals are designed with the boat being no wider than 7 foot, there are exceptions the Thames being one where 14 feet wide is the maximum. If you follow this link to John's web page you'll see what I mean http://www.canals.com/canaldata.htm. The vast majority of Seamasters are wider than 7 feet.
Larger Seamasters from the 8 meter upwards should be fine in coastal waters, especially boats with twin engines; on calm days! My 30 has been across to France several times.

Hope this helps
Mike
