No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

In For Blacking

Friday 30th March 2012
Kings Bromley to Shobnall.
11.5 Miles and 13 Locks.

Yesterday we came up to Shobnall Basin, it was a very smooth journey due to most of the locks being in our favour.

We met a Canaltime hireboat at Alrewas lock, as the lock was in their favour Jayne opened the bottom gates but instead of going straight in they stopped on the lock moorings and walked up to see what was going on, then another Canaltime boat overtook them and went into the lock, they all seemed happy being on the Canals which is the most important thing.

Today we'll get into the drydock so that I can fit the Crowther propeller we bought last year, that should be done this afternoon leaving Saturday and Sunday to slap some Comastic blacking on the hull.
