A much requested video, this lengthy ramble discusses the three main types of narrowboat toilet, namely the cassette (eg Thetford or Porta Potti type), the pump-out, and the new kid on the block, the composting loo. There is much discussion of poo and wee and even a brief shot of it going through a pipe. You have been warned!
Here’s your chance to WIN with Cruising The Cut and Archant, a major UK media company which publishes the excellent “Canal Boat” magazine each month. I’m running the competition as a way of saying thank you to all my subscribers, welcome to my new subscribers and appreciation of over 500,000 total views on my channel.
In which I try to condense everything that’s happened in July and August into a ten minute video. Spoiler: I succeed because in reality there isn’t much to tell. I also trail what I’m going to be doing over the next few months and some new videos that I’m working on.
The August Bank Holiday brought rain at first but sunshine by the Monday and so off I trekked to the annual Festival of Water, organised by the Inland Waterways Association. It’s a free event which sees over a hundred narrowboats moor up on a chosen stretch of canal – different each year – for the long weekend.
In which I travel – by car – to a legendary canal village and meet the inhabitants both human (should that be “hooman”?) and animal of the narrowboat Ewart and find out what brought them to the waterways.
