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.

Don't Fill Your Freezer With Cardboard.

Monday 15th October 2012.
Kings Bromley Marina.

One subject which needs a bit of  thought when living on a Narrowboat is storage, especially if you've moved from a medium sized house, and, you soon find freezers on boats are a lot smaller than the one's you're used to in a house. 

We're fortunate in having space for a fridge in the kitchen (we don't call it galley) and a freezer in the utility room at the rear of the boat.

Our freezer is a Shoreline 12 volt model with a capacity of 74 litres, bigger than most boat freezers, even so it soon fills up when we return with the shopping, so for the past year or so we've been transfering the contents of the boxes into freezer bags with the cooking instruction written on the bags, this takes up half as much space as leaving the stuff in boxes.

Empty boxes = more room in the freezer.
