Narrowboat Blogs: Canal Boats for Holidays and Life

‘Boating Blogs’ cover all sorts of boating.  Here we have tried to concentrate only on canal-related blogs.

Duck Tales is where Mark, the skipper of the Wandering Duck, relates a bit about how he and his wife offer something new in the world of canal boat holidays.  “we are neither a hotel boat, nor a hire boat – we fall under skippered hire or hostel boat”, with frequent up to date entries keeping us informed about their new venture and the friends they are making through it.
