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.

The End of our Little Adventure.


18th May 2013.
Kings Bromley Marina.

When we sold up in 2007 and moved onto the canals we didn't have any idea how long our liveaboard life was going to last, well we do now, as we've just bought a property on the south coast at Poole in Dorset.

We've been considering our future for the last few months for various reasons and decided to set a strict criteria for any property we would look at thinking it would take most of this year, however last month we found one, made an offer which was accepted and bought it, this all happened a lot quicker than planned.

No Direction is now on brokerage having done a fine job of looking after us for the last five and bit years we've lived on her.

We've enjoyed our liveaboad life on the canals and the years before that on our weekend/ holiday narrowboat April Rose, also a couple of years on our Glass Fibre cruiser in the seventies which we moored at Hockley Heath on the Stratford Canal.

The waterways won't be getting rid of us completely as I'll still be involved with Nutfield and Raymond when time allows so we may still see some of you around.

Obviously with no narrowboat or canal matters to blog about, our blog, which we started in May 2010 will finish when No Direction is sold.

Sorry to hear that you are going back on land but like us I expect the time is right. Good luck with selling the boat and the next adventure.

Hi Ray & Jayne
Sorry to hear your live-aboard days are coming to an end. We're off to the IWA Festival at Cassiobury Park this year so if you are down that way, give us a call. Perhaps we could have another meal together sometime to catch up on news. All the very best.
