Minimum engine size to cruise canal system?

Hi - I plan to buy a narrowboat (first time!) and want to initially explore the whole of the canal system; Kennet on Avon to the North of England. I understand I will have to go on tidal rivers at least some way to achieve this. what is the optimim engine power I will need for this? Thank tou.
