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.

It's Gone.

7th November 2013
Poole, Dorset.

On Tuesday we completed the sale of No Direction with the handover of the boat at Kings Bromley to the new owner Marcus Murray, we understand that he will be heading back to Macclesfield with it and intends to eventually live on it.

Great Haywood Boat Sales did a good job for us, we're glad we chose them plus the fact that we saved money, whilst the boat was on one of their sales jetties at Kings Bromley we didn't have to pay mooring fee's or licence the boat as it was on "Trade Plates" so 3 months mooring and 6 months (minimum period) licence was saved.

No Direction hauled out a couple of weeks ago at Great Haywood Marina for a survey before the completion of the sale.
With No Direction weighing 22 tons plus a huge trailer you need one of these.
Well you couldn't expect us to live on the edge of Poole Harbour without owning a boat so this is our latest acquisition, Seajay on her mooring at Lilliput Sailing Club, Jayne say's she won't be coming sailing with me but we've joined the sailing club as joint members so you never know.
As we're not "Travelling in No Direction" any longer this is definitely the last blog, (maybe)
 So thanks for reading and over and out.

Ditto! All the best to you and Jayne anyway. If (when) you get the urge to do a bit of narrowboating you'd be very welcome on Jubilee (hoping to have it all to ourselves in a couple of months ...)

Ray, it was good to meet you and Jayne, even if only the once. Congratulations on selling the boat (and buying another, rather different one).
And if anyone's still looking for a boat, Starcross is still for sale :-)

You seem to have taken the journey we are planning.....we want to cruise the system for a number of years then finish off by the sea....and possibly own a boat that can travel a little faster and further. As you still own a boat please keep blogging, if only for us to see how you get on with this boat?

We sold our last boat with Great Haywood boat sales... excellent and exactly as they advised on the sale of our boat. We just need Percy fitted out to make him able to look after us for what we estimate to be a five year journey?

Take care and enjoy the next part of your lives,

Nev & Rachel, NB percy Fradley Junction.

Hi Ray,

I have been following your blog since you started it. Been really interesting to see the journeys you have undertaken. I especially liked super ray saving the sheep from the canal. All the best in your new house. And if you do get a sail boat maybe the blog can continue. Mike Yorke
