Vlog 230: Little Ships

Continuing my journey east, I go onto the River Trent briefly again before hopping back off it at the Cranfleet Cut and then the Beeston Canal. It was very windy.

  1. I wouldn’t be surprised if the original Dunkirk little boat you saw appeared in the film of the same name.

  2. Thanks again David, very scenic, beautiful. I so enjoy these vlogs of yours.

  3. Hello David, I admire you for for using rivers. We did 3 weeks on the (non tidal) Thames are few years ago and at times the ‘land’ seemed miles away! Mooring up during the night was nightmarish as there weren’t many places suitable for a narrowboat. I was relieved and glad to get back onto the canal network. Take care and all the best. PS. Can’t remember if you’ve done a vlog on winterising a NB. If not would you consider doing one? Cheers

    • Thank you. After a week stuck because of the swollen river levels, I’m glad to be back on the canals as well! As for winterising, it’s probably not something I’d vlog about because I don’t do it (due to living aboard). Cheers

  4. From space to Dunkirk. Entertaining and educational. Well done. Next time I will be watching for the life jacket AND the big helmet.
