Not actually climbing into the water-tank this time. Just on the outside, painting the lid.
It’s been one of those jobs waiting to be done but never got round to it.
The weather has cleared up for the past few days, so I removed it and got some paint on it.
This is when I was painting and sanding it.
Eventually took the orbital out. Sanding by hand just takes too long.

Now just on the outskirts of Weedon. Weedon Bec I think they call this place. It’s all very peaceful apart from some horrible yapping dogs which belong to the permanent moorers pictured on the left and side of this photograph. They’re on the other side of the canal, or I might be tempted to give […]
Pig’s hill. Don’t see many pigs around, certainly not seen any on the towpath…. Stowehill Has a nice view down to Flore, the opposing village, separated by the River Nene, just in it’s infancy here. Took some images out across the valley. I scouted the area, as I always scout the area before a move. […]
Quite a long trek. Mooring between Bugbrooke and Gayton There isn’t really any mooring in Bugbrooke, unless you want to stop outside the pub. The rest of the journey is along ‘reclaimed bank’. This is where the towpath has been eroded and re-supplemented with new soil and sandbags, then re-seeded and allowed to grow. The […]
Yes. Meadows. These ones with sheep, horses and the odd duck and goose thrown in. In the middle of no-where basically. I’ve been here since Sunday, but I had to work on Sunday due to the weather being so abysmal during the week. I only managed to get out on that one day. Today it […]
**Update March/April 2018 Changed the dates and included some more up-to-date references for the banker deaths. New deaths added. **Update October 2017 There was a number of deaths in 2017, most of them I picked up second hand. As I’ve said before, I try to stick to the main players. I’ve added the deaths for […]
Not much of a move, but I’m on a different canal now. Blisworth Arm. Leads to the River Nene which has been non-navigable for the last few weeks. I believe it’s calming down now, and the boats are starting to come past me again. Blisworth Arm It’s very quite here. The bird sing a lot. […]
**Updated: 4th April, 2018 ** Updated post here https://www.michaeltyler.co.uk/googles-alt-media-off-button-forthcoming-war/. Google Demonetization You better watch out…. Google’s latest move is to censor online content moving through it’s various channels; search, video which is ‘controversial’. You can see it in black and white above. This site, and other onliners such as WSWS have experienced exclusion from the […]
This is my new location, commonly named ‘Gayton Junction’. I was here last year, only under the A43 flyover, listening to the cars and trains and painting my boat during the day. The boat is painted now, and I don’t have to stay under the flyover. You can see Bonnie on the picture if you […]
Arrived on Sunday. Moved through the tunnel, across the snow covered wastelands of Northampton. Most of the journey is underground, through the Blisworth tunnel, which is if I remember rightly, a little over a mile. Now located in Blisworth, where I will stay for the next couple of weeks. Blisworth is OK. It’s got a […]
