For his last boat trip of the weekend, Mr Monkey had a trip on Coniston aboard the Gondola, an old Victorian steam yacht that was converted into a house boat, sunk, dredged up, and the restored by the National Trust to take people across the lake. Of course, Mr Monkey travelled in the first class cabin.
There's a page about the Gondola at the National Trust website.
