Several people have asked me where I plan to take the narrowboat over the summer and several possibilities have occurred to me. In this video, I describe why I abandoned one plan and have settled (mostly) on another.
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.
Could this be the end of my watery adventures..? There’s only one way to find out and that’s by watching this episode when Things Are Changing. How very teasing of me.
I’ve been shopping. At least, my fingers have shopped online and this video is the haul of stuff I ordered namely things to make me gas safe, gunk, a shower thingummyjig and a map.
I take a walk around the marina and point out some different types of narrowboat styles and features for the benefit of viewers either in other countries which don’t have narrowboats, or those in this country who might be looking to buy.
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.
In which I do a canal-oriented shopping “haul” type of Vlog and follow it with a intricate explanation of how to run a mains cable half the length of the boat in order to install more power sockets.
