20th November update

Just a short video about some changes made to the boat.

I’ve fitted these now.

If I take it in fuel terms, I’ve used about 40% of the fuels I would usually use since fitting these devices.

That’s about 50% fuels savings in the week.

Well worth the £12.

I don’t wake up with a cold head now!

I really need this for the forthcoming cold winter.

Braunston vs Devizes

Devizes, where I winter moored last year, was right in the middle of a town.

This is on the outskirts of a village, along with one other person. In Devizes, there were at least 5 others.

Braunston is a historic village. Although I’ve not researched the level of this, architecture points to the fact that there was a diverse and specialised workforce, mostly supported by the canal.
