This was going to be an entirely different Vlog but I have a problem with my water pump going off randomly – usually the sign of a leak somewhere in the pipework. But where?
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.
A nasty discovery one day when I went to turn the gas bottle off as I left the boat, finding it leaking ever so slightly which it must have been doing since I installed it three months earlier.
How on earth do you keep your clothes all clean and lovely whilst on board a narrowboat cruising round the canals? In this video, I explain the options.
For viewers who do not own a canal boat but are curious about life on board, this Vlog shows one of the most frequent domestic tasks undertaken by liveaboards. No, not the toilet emptying. The other task.
It’s rainy, cold and blowing a gale outside so I made a quick video about five simple things – three of them lightbulbs – that make my life nicer on board my canal boat!
I was supposed to be taking the narrowboat to a winter mooring in Warwickshire but for reasons I explain in this video, I didn’t. Instead of cancelling the trip though – as I had invited a friend along to show me how to do canalboating properly – we went for a two-day cruise to Braunston. This is the video of that trip.
Vlog 8 and I spend my first night aboard the canal boat – still on land! There’s all kinds of squeaks and groans and bumps in the night and they’re not from me. No, it’s nothing saucy, don’t get your hopes up…
This is a tour of my canal boat from top to tail. It’s still on chocks at a marina whilst I line up some maintenance to be done on it but will hopefully take to the water again in a few weeks – just in time for winter!
