The Montgomery canal which runs from Shropshire into north Wales is absolutely beautiful but only parts of it are in water and useable by boats. Efforts are underway to connect the whole length and this video covers the latest developments.
This video profiles the incredible Edwin Fasham and his two custom-built canal boats, both of them unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and mostly hand-built by him in his back garden!
If you’re a fan of boating on YouTube you surely must know Nikki and Jason Wynn, ex-RVers turned global sailors. Now having a brand new boat built, they decided to take a little time out to visit Britain and have a go at narrowboating. So I sorted them a 10-day trip on the Llangollen Canal.
I spend a day with Connor Warner, a professional boat mover who takes customers’ narrowboats, cruisers, Dutch barges … you name it …. around the rivers and canals of Britain.
Every year, the IWA in Milton Keynes organises a massive clean-up of the local stretch of the Grand Union canal, which a team of eager volunteers undertake. The garbage they pull from the waters is quite staggering, as this video shows.
A return visit to ML1392 Sarinda on the Wirral to see how Simon and Gemma are getting on with their painstaking restoration of this historic ship.
An all-electric narrowboat is now available for hire by the day so it’s a low-cost way to test the waters of near-silent narrowboating and leave no air pollution in your wake.
This is a much-requested fireside chat video where I sit and chat for nearly half an hour, answering questions posed to me by viewers.
I spent a day aboard The Pirate Boat with Captain Heidi; this is part 1 of two videos where we tour her boat and chat about her life afloat.
A replay of my live broadcast from “Boat Life Live” at the NEC.
