In which I do a canal-oriented shopping “haul” type of Vlog and follow it with a intricate explanation of how to run a mains cable half the length of the boat in order to install more power sockets.
With temperatures currently plummeting in the UK and at least a fortnight’s cold snap predicted with sub zero temperatures coming, it’s time to have a look at the main source of heating on my narrowboat, the Villager Puffin stove.
For viewers who do not own a canal boat but are curious about life on board, this Vlog shows one of the most frequent domestic tasks undertaken by liveaboards. No, not the toilet emptying. The other task.
A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine, a former colleague from my life in TV, came to visit and experience narrowboat life so we went for a cruise. We didn’t get far – to the pub, in fact. But we went by boat so that’s OK. This is the video of that trip.
