About Us

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.

On holiday with Pat and Keith


We eventually arrived at Trevor to meet Pat and Keith. They were taking our other boat "Merlin" from Anglo Welsh for a fortnights holiday. Merlin had previously been red as you may have seen in early blogs but to keep the hire fleet colours she had been painted green. Anyway after a smashing lunch we left the base at around 3.30pm and headed for Hurleston Junction again. This was the first time Keith had charge of a boat and I think he was quiet apprehensive. Both Ian and myself took turns in helping him get to grips with the steering and before long Keith had got the hang of it.
