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.
This is a follow-up to the last Vlog which was all about narrowboat toilets, hence the odd numbering of this Vlog. In this, I show you how I took out and replaced all the seals, vents and slides inside a Thetford C200 toilet cassette.
A much requested video, this lengthy ramble discusses the three main types of narrowboat toilet, namely the cassette (eg Thetford or Porta Potti type), the pump-out, and the new kid on the block, the composting loo. There is much discussion of poo and wee and even a brief shot of it going through a pipe. You have been warned!
In which I try to condense everything that’s happened in July and August into a ten minute video. Spoiler: I succeed because in reality there isn’t much to tell. I also trail what I’m going to be doing over the next few months and some new videos that I’m working on.
Just a few weeks after putting in the order for new dinette cushions for my canal boat, they have arrived! No doubt to immense anticipation, in this video I described why I didn’tlike the old ones and show off the replacements.
After a viewer request I hereby present a (rather long, sorry) video of how I set and light the Villager Puffin stove on my canal boat. I do two examples, one of lighting it from cold and the other of rekindling it from dying embers.
