Vlog 67: Cash Flow

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!

  1. You do not need to worry if your Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is in a marina with only GRP boats when the waterwater freezes. We do not have that cold long winters that often, unless in the North and Scotland. Its when moored on the river/canal and steel craft break the ice on there travels and then ice gets pushed against GRP craft the damage is done. So best to keep a GRP in a marina on a canal and some rivers. The lower reaches of the Cam and much of the lower reaches of the Great Ouse has not frozen for many years.

  2. Great stuff as always. It might be worth pointing out that you could be looking at more than a year’s waiting list with popular builders. I’m expecting to have a 40 ft Beetle built by Aintree Boats next year, but it’s been a long wait!
