I have always been fascinated by the English narrow boats. If I lived there I’d spend a year or two canal traveling.  

The good lady and myself looked into living on a canal boat , it seems that renting a mooring in a marina , costs more than paying a sensible mortgage. We also looked at buying a few acres of land with its own moorings ,  this would have been a better option except it was just a bit too far to travel to work.

Just out of curiosity what does that cost?  I’m guessing electric and water would be included.  I follow a few people on YouTube and they travel and tie up in free locations but they have to move every 14 days.  They mostly have propane fridges and heaters and solar panels for lights.   None of them seem to have jobs witch I wondered about as none of them have a large enough fan base to pay bills.  Land on a canal would be awesome. But then you might as well build a house.

I've been into a marina for work this morning,  and I think I'll be back there later in the week, so I'll enquire about up to date prices .

hello, very expensive in Abingdon marina (River Thames) that is is why many just moor up along the river and move after ? days, there is even a local council worker to check on their moorings
