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.
This is not a vlog, there’s no talking or music (deliberately) – it is a “slow TV” uninterrupted recording from the bow camera of the electric day-hire boat seen in video 293 doing the return journey from Tamhorn Farm Bridge to Kings Orchard Marina on the Coventry canal near Lichfield.
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.
This is Part 2 of the day I spent with Heidi, the Narrowboat Pirate, aboard her boat “The Rum Wench”. In this video, we cruise a little way up the Llangollen Canal in north Wales, starting from the Prees branch.
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.
