  2. I LOVE THIS SITE!!! Living in Hawaii and thinking of doing some narrow boat cruising when my friend and I visit your part of the world. We are both a very healthy early 60ʻs full of p and v.

    Will keep watching to get some ideas about where to go, and to hire a smaller boat for a week. I am a commercial salmon fishermanʻs daughter and have a little boating experience.

    Aloha and love your videos watching them on youtube tv. Way more attractive than r-ving.


  3. First, let me thank you. I discovered your site a few months ago, and your videos have brightened an otherwise dreary Michigan winter.

    You asked for website suggestions; I have two Youtube sites I’ve followed for a while.

    1. Townsends. These vlogs focus on colonial American life, with an emphasis on cooking. But he’s also built a dugout canoe, lean-to shelters, made oil cloth, and so on.

    2. Abroad in Japan. He’s English and has lived in Japan for a few years teaching English. Funny, if a bit coarse at times.

    So thanks again for the many pleasant hours you’ve provided!

    Could a person really use a horse or I suppose pony to pull a narrow boat from town to town? There seems to be a lot of things the tow rope would have to be lifted over. All those boats parked on the towpath side with their ariel’s up and the chimneys.

    • Nowadays it would certainly be quite awkward for sure; how the few trip boats that uses horses get around the problem, I do not know. Back when the canals were purely for commercial freight there would likely have been none / few of the boats moored along the cut as there are now.

  5. David: I just discovered these, several highly well done mini Aircraft Specific documentary’s . These are exceptionally researched and equally well narrated. The gentleman uses his own 3 D Drawings. Check these out, you’ll be glad you did. See: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1ZBQ-F-yktYD4m5AzM6pww/videos
