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.
There’s nothing finer than looking around other people’s narrowboats so join me on this quest to find another narrowboat (as mentioned a couple of vlogs ago). Or not, as the case may be.
The (in)famous hand-drawn canal map returns in this vlog where I contemplate places to go in the narrowboat in 2019.
A quick video demo of a new toy I bought for the boat, a temperature / humidity gauge with three wireless remote sensors. Hours of fun!
The sun is out and it’s time to sort a few bits of the narrowboat that are looking less than prime, notably the paintwork needs a spruce-up and polish plus one or two tiny rust spots on the roof need attending to.
After three-plus years on my boat, did I choose the right one for me and if not, why not? These are the thoughts I’ve been having on that subject, prompted by an email from a viewer (thanks Chris Begbie!)
After getting frustrated with the cheap little twin-tub washing machine I had aboard the boat from the early days, I ditched it and bought a proper automatic machine.
In this video I explain what I think of it and why it fits the bill.
In this episode, my mystery Crew member and I continue our winter jaunt along the North Oxford canal from just outside Rugby, through Newbold and up to just past Brinklow.
Drop your jaw and gasp in disbelief as you watch me take the boat out for a cruise in winter. Yes, winter. OK, it’s not snowing but it was December, a time when I’m normally tucked up by the roaring stove with the boat on the mooring.
Happy new year! Welcome to 2019. If you’re lolling in a chair relaxing after festivities last night, these suggestions of some excellent YouTube channels that you might enjoy could be of interest.
