Welcome to our website. We are George and Sue and this is where we write about our time on board our narrowboat on the canals and rivers of England.
We bought our first boat, Phoenix III in the autumn of 2007 and started exploring the waterways from our base on the Ashby Canal near our home in Hinckley. We boated in every imaginable type of weather possible on our travels but we were still undeterred by it all so in the spring of 2014 we sold Phoenix III and bought Caxton.
Built to a high specification and at sixteen feet longer than Phoenix III, Caxton is a true liveaboard boat.
We keep a record of our travels and exploits and publish it on this website. It’s not a daily account because we live on the land most of the time but when we’re out it’s a different story. You’re very welcome to read our posts, look at our photos, share in our memories and hopefully enjoy the experience.
This blog takes up the story after we sold Phoenix III and bought Caxton.
