A narrowboat renovation project by Nick Goodall.


The minor fall, the major lift

5th November 2023

Happy November! Strap in for a short one; I spent a few days in Denmark this week, followed by house-sitting, and… the boat did not progress far.

On one exciting hand I discovered a leak in the kitchen windows; it’s not bad, and hopefully re-sealing a little section will do it, but I’ll need to swing the boat around for that.

And on the other hand I started dismantling the stove:

Dismantling stove

But even that didn’t get far; the bolts are rusted and seized inside, so I’ll probably shear them and deal with the damage later. When it’s in pieces I can de-rust, re-paint and re-assemble.

Until next Sunday!
