We’ve launched our own Youtube channel!

Last November, Youtube celebrated its 15th birthday, and it’s now the ‘go to’ for practical advice videos for millions of people every day.

We’ve been working with Robin Media to build up a collection of narrowboat holiday video guides.  And we’ve published a series of inspirational films on our new Youtube channel, giving a flavour of what it’s like to take a holiday afloat.

Advice for narrowboat holiday novices

From daily checks, to general advice, our snappy ‘how to’ video guides aim to make it easier for narrowboat holiday newcomers.

Daily check guides include checking the engine coolant, priming the stern greaser and checking the engine oil level.  We also show you how to flush a toilet on a narrowboat, top up the water, check the weed hatch and operate the bilge pump.  And there’s advice on operating the control lever, steering the boat and changing a gas canister.

Our Boat Handover video gives a longer tutorial

As well as short ‘how to’ video guides, we’ve published our Boat Handover video, giving a longer tutorial.  We recommend watching this, as well as the Canal & River Trust’s Boater’s Handbook video ahead of your narrowboat holiday.

Enjoy a family canal boat holiday

Our new family canal boat holiday films were made at our Tardebigge base.  These six films give a flavour of the things to see and do on a narrowboat holiday.  There are scenes of life on board our boats, going through a lock and a tunnel, mooring up and more.
