    Foxes afloat is about a couple who explore Britain by narrow boat. You can watch it on YouTube from episode where they decide to sell everything and build their own narrow boat. It is a vlog format so some episodes do not last very long but is is a fascinating journey through the British canal system and boatbuilding. Lots of historical facts thrown in too. I have watched 35 or so segments so far.

    Thanks for the Heads up Baxter.
    I will take a look once I catch up with the last four days mail.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Busy days for you Rob. If you do get around to viewing then from about blog 50 you get the scenic stuff. The first 40 or so are about building their boat the Silver Fox. I never realized those things are only 6 foot 10 inches from gunnel to gunnel.

    I think the word Narrow boat is not quite the picture Gary. Very narrow boat might fit the bill better.
