About Us

My photo
In 1977 we hired our first narrowboat from Anglo Welsh at Market Harborough.From that moment our destiny was set. In 2006 we finally purchased our own brand new 57' narrowboat which we named 'Free Spirit'. Our aim is to travel the length and breadth of all the navigable rivers and canals of the UK. This will be our story as it unfolds.

Our sick boat

At Whitchurch lift bridge our engine started making peculiar noises. On closer inspection Ian discovered our fan belt had split. As usual Ian carries spares of everything and duly came up with a new belt. What he hadn't realised is that he was sold the wrong one and this one didn't fit!!! Of he went into Whitchurch armed with engine number and came back clutching a new belt. Guess what. This one didn't fit either!!!!! Soooo Ian being Ian decided he would modify the linkage to make it fit, and you've guessed it, it did.
