- Are 26er v 29er threads really dead ?
Took the long way home from work today.
Went to visit a friend who lives on a narrow boat and is currently parked near here.
Overtook a roady on a Sustrans route.
Got overtaken by a mountain bike on the tow path.
Rode some paths I haven’t ridden for a while.
Got “chased” by a playful dog in the woods.
All in all, a nice ride.Posted 4 years agoOCBMember
<Pedantry> # proceed with tongue firmly in cheek
A boat would be ‘moored’.
True enough, unless it’s up on a trailer I guess, or lives permanently out of the water like a kinda … long narrow park-home.
Although … the original sentence as it stands could still be fine, given that semantically – it is the friend that is parked near here, not necessarily the narrowboat on which they [also happen to] live (which could be out of the water anyway).

Reference the boat parking pedantry;Posted 4 years ago
If we can accept the figure of speech “I’m parked on the road” to mean “I have parked my car on the road” for example, then the sentence is grammatically and terminologically correct, as she owns both a car and a boat, and the former is usually parked close to where the latter is moored. She either walks or cycles between the two.
