Vlog 35: Go West, Young Man

After a night’s stop at the bottom of Watford Locks it was time to move on again. Originally I had Braunston in mind but I didn’t need to be there for several days so in part because of that and partly because the weather was chilly, I ended up in a lovely spot at Norton Junction. This video shows that journey.

Vlog 33: Halcyon Days?

This video is a retrospective, looking back at what facilities you get when mooring in a marina; specifically Yelvertoft Marina where I was for winter. A massive thank you to everyone there who made my early boating days so pleasant.

Vlog 31: Master and Commander (Part 2)

This is the second and concluding part of my two-day trip along the Welford Arm of the Grand Union Canal (Leicester section). In this video, we – my friend Neil and me, each on our own boats in convoy – continue along the arm to the end, moor up, go to the pub and then trundle back.

Vlog 28: Route Canal

Several people have asked me where I plan to take the narrowboat over the summer and several possibilities have occurred to me. In this video, I describe why I abandoned one plan and have settled (mostly) on another.
