This is the third (and final, as it turns out) video in my short series about the costs of buying and owning a canal narrowboat. Here I talk about the annual ongoing costs you will incur regardless of how you use the boat, plus a quick overview of what I spend to live on board each month.
This is part 2 of my short series about the costs of buying, owning and living on a narrowboat. In this video I discuss what it costs to buy a narrowboat, from cheap second-hand ones to expensive second-hand ones, to new builds, sailaways, share boats and even GRP cruisers!
After months of people saying “but what does it cost?”, here’s the first in a series of 3 or 4 videos about how much money it takes to buy, own and live aboard a narrowboat. In this video, it’s all about the buying process.
This is part 2 of my extensive narrow boat tour; in this video I cover the bathroom (“head”), bedroom and then the engine room (the latter to a very detailed degree!)
After a year of living aboard my canal boat, I present part 1 of a brand new, really really detailed look around the boat. I show what I’ve changed and what it’s like to be afloat today.
I thought I’d try a Q&A because some stuff comes up quite a lot so here’s my first go at it. Also I reveal the answers to the recent competition plus the name of the winner!
This is a follow-up to the last Vlog which was all about narrowboat toilets, hence the odd numbering of this Vlog. In this, I show you how I took out and replaced all the seals, vents and slides inside a Thetford C200 toilet cassette.
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!

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.
