Vlog 169: Hire Purpose

I visit a narrowboat hire firm in Gilwern, South Wales, on the Mon & Brec canal. Amongst their fleet of conventional narrowboats they also have two fully-electric ones that don’t even have solar or a generator on board. So how have they managed this feat when it would be impractical elsewhere? Watch and find out!

Vlog 168: Positive Charge

In this vlog I visit the “Pamela May”, a trip boat run by the charitable Droitwich Canals Trust. We see their current boat and hear about the excellent work of the Trust but visit Ortomarine, the company building the Trust’s brand new, all-electric powered boat.

Join me at the Newbold Tunnel just outside Rugby, on the North Oxford canal, as I interview Professor Oliver Lia about his exciting plans for a new technological breakthrough for narrowboat cleaning.
