March 18

I know, it has again been some time since I posted. Well, winter means much less excitement in the cruising world for me. I find it somewhat difficult and un-fun to attempt to deal with wet ropes in thick wet, cold gloves, amongst other things, so I haven’t moved much. I  HAVE, however, been busy: ringing lots of bells, and making progress in learning methods.

The big news, though, is that I have now acquired “Wandering Canuck Too”

The photo is before she was lifted for inspection, and before renaming. I’m quite (a lot!!) excited about this next phase of my explorations and adventures. I’ll begin with some preparation work, and I’ll have to move aboard, but all that is in preparation for taking the boat down the Thames, across the English Channel, and into the waterways of northern Europe (for starters). I’ll post some more photos as I begin to learn how to run the boat (starting with exiting the crowded marina where the boat is now moored). Watch this space for chronicles of how this process goes!

About Ed Mortimer

I'm a retired school teacher, now living on my Dutch cruiser in France. I'm touring as much of the canals and river systems as I can. This blog describes what I do and where I've been. I did spend 5 years on first a narrowboat, and then this boat, in Britain.
