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.
In advance of leaving the marina for the summer and going touring non-stop, I decided to have a practise run / warm-up. So me and marina manager Neil took our boats in convoy up the Grand Union Canal Leicester Arm to the Welford Arm and down the end (to the pub again).
A question that I’ve had a lot lately is “how do you get the Internet on board a narrowboat in the middle of a canal?” So in this video I explain how I do it for both local WiFi and 3G or 4G access when cruising.
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.
This was going to be an entirely different Vlog but I have a problem with my water pump going off randomly – usually the sign of a leak somewhere in the pipework. But where?
Just a few weeks after putting in the order for new dinette cushions for my canal boat, they have arrived! No doubt to immense anticipation, in this video I described why I didn’tlike the old ones and show off the replacements.
