WW says:

though you can have larger boats here, a smaller one might be quite handy to move around some of the smaller drains. A 30 to 45ft boat would be easier to handle- some of the bends are quite tight!
In that area, would be worth visiting Fox Boats, of March and ask their advice. You might also consider, if you are not venturing further onto the narrow waterways network, of a wide beam boat- a widebeam steel- or a GRP cruiser can be quite good value on waterways like this- and the advantage of an wheelhouse can prove itself on a miserable day!
