Vlog 68: Been Counting

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.

I knew I’d forget something; a viewer on YouTube has pointed out I missed the four-yearly “BSS” (boat safety) scheme check. The cost of that depends on whether you’ve got anything that needs sorting…
