It’s Christmas time and there’s nothing finer than a slap up roast for lunch. Unfortunately I can’t cook but pal Expert Gary from Yelvertoft Marina is a dab hand in the kitchen. He, his wife Carol, plus boating friends Myra and Adrian came over to my boat and cooked up the full works in a cramped galley. This is how they did it.
I spent a rather chilly evening over at Foxton Locks for the inaugural Illuminated Boats Festival to be held at that venue. The boats were excellent – lots of decorations – but the event was a bit flat.
It’s cold and dark outside so I’m spending a lot of time watching YouTube. There are some excellent channels to keep you entertained and these are some of my favourite ones that are nothing to do with narrowboating.
On Saturday December 3rd, a group of narrowboat dwelling / owning / buying YouTube video bloggers came together in London for a Christmas shindig. For most of us, this was the first time we’d met in person rather than as a comment on a YouTube page.
With many thanks to Alan and Wendy for letting me on board, this is another video where I peek into other boaters’ craft – but also, this particular narrowboat has a fairly rare type of engine set up, being a hybrid diesel-electric.
