The Pink Eco Narrowboat Journey
elektra has been my home since October 2nd 2021. It's a modern 62 foot electric narrowboat and I love living on board. I sold my house, car, motorbike and almost everything else over a two year period ready for my adventure. I'm a "continuous cruiser" which means I don't have a home mooring but prefer to explore our 2,000 miles of canal on an ongoing basis, summer and winter.
My lovely modern narrowboat was built by Chris Smith and the guys at Smithwood and I set off onto the network on January 20th 2022. I'm really loving the boat (Smithwood did a great job on it) and enjoying exploring the canal system.
In the words of David Bowie, "I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring".
To share the journey so far, go to YouTube and view my channel "@PinkHatMan". Most of the time the Webcam should be live (broadband signal permitting).
