Vlog 12: Bring Out The Braunston

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 11: Power Mad

A brief technical interlude before the video of the trip to Braunston because my battery charger packed up and suddenly the boat had no usable power. So in this video I explain how I diagnosed and resolved the problem.

Vlog 9: Maiden Voyage

After months of waiting while my house was sold, the boat was fettled and lots of boring stuff was dealt with, it was finally time to relaunch my narrowboat into the canal and take it out for a quick trip!

Vlog 8: Night Rider

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…

Vlog 7: Paint Shop Boys

Not content with my “patch it and hope” painting of the rusty spots along the gunwales of my canal boat as seen in the last episode, I decided to try to do it properly. This did not entirely come to fruition, as I explain in this video.
