The Pink Eco Narrowboat Journey

My lovely new 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.

The build was a somewhat tortuous journey at times, not least due to Covid, but at last I'm out and about. The house and car are sold, time to move forward, slowly... 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).

Look inside...
