Vlog 197: Hoping for Angels

Pressing on from the mooring at LMH – see last vlog – I unexpectedly stop early for a week when the Bosley lock flight is closed due to a leak in the canal at the top. Once it’s re-opened, I go up the flight in a pretty good time, all things considered, despite the peculiar “dual top gate” installation on these locks.

  1. Greetings from Canada. Ive watched all you vlogs. They are professional, educational and interesting. If I went through each one and noted your likes and dislikes and recommendations I could have a very nice narrowboat built. Not going to happen.
    Do you have a car
    Would a foldable bicycle be useful when you need to go shopping
    I know you have said you are not a sociable person but apart from the few guests it seems to me you lead a lonely life.
    On the other hand a partner on a narrowboat would send me crazy. Either way it,s your life and I wish you well and thank you for your vlogs

    • I own a car but do not take it around the canals with me, I fetch it when I moor over winter. Many boaters have bikes but I do not and have not needed one so far.

  2. Another great video David, interesting Locks to be sure. Will you be posting a video about your Gearbox fix and or blacking? Thanks for this one ;)

    • Cheers Michael. Yes, there’ll be a vlog about the engine and gearbox but in chronological order so I’ve a few more cruising and other videos to go first!

  3. What time of the year is this?
    can you put the actual date of filming on your videos ?
