Guides On Narrowboating
Venetian Marina has been doing some excellent narrow boat blogs recently which are full of advice and are really good guides to narrowboating. The latest one is about how to check a stern gear on a canal boat and there is even a video clip on our you tube channel which shows a Marine Surveyor surveying a stern gear on a canal boat.
There is also a blog about the stoppages on the canal stystem which is particularly relevant at this time of year when the Canal and River Trust carry out maintenance on the canals, canal locks and canal towpaths. In this blog we explain how to find out when stoppages are occuring and how to register for stoppage updates, useful information for any narrowboat owner!
If you are a narrowboat newbie, there is even a blog which gives advice on how to operate and steer a narrowboat.
There are several more interesting and useful 'how to' guides on narrowboating on Venetian Marinas' blog posts, why not take a look at them.
