After three-plus years on my boat, did I choose the right one for me and if not, why not? These are the thoughts I’ve been having on that subject, prompted by an email from a viewer (thanks Chris Begbie!)
After getting frustrated with the cheap little twin-tub washing machine I had aboard the boat from the early days, I ditched it and bought a proper automatic machine.
In this video I explain what I think of it and why it fits the bill.
In this episode, my mystery Crew member and I continue our winter jaunt along the North Oxford canal from just outside Rugby, through Newbold and up to just past Brinklow.

Happy new year! Welcome to 2019. If you’re lolling in a chair relaxing after festivities last night, these suggestions of some excellent YouTube channels that you might enjoy could be of interest.
A brief Christmas message, recorded live, from Cruising the Cut with special guest London Boat Girl.
At the beginning of the month (December 2018) I took the train into Birmingham to visit a floating Christmas market – essentially a gathering of trading narrowboats on the canal outside the Arena.

The penultimate Not A Vlog of the 2018 cruising, this is the trip on the narrowboat from Blisworth to Weedon via Gayton Junction on the Grand Union canal.
After several weeks, at last I embarked on the final leg of my autumn 2018 cruise along the Grand Union canal, the return stretch taking me from Blisworth, through Gayton, Weedon, Norton Junction and ultimately to Braunston.
