Getting Ready to go

We have bought our narrowboat called Valiant No7. Do not ask where the name comes from but, despite all the old wives tales of that is unlucky to rename a boat,Valiant No7 I think we will.. more later.

My wife and I decided not to sell up but rent out or house, thus providing an income and ensuring we were still keeping pace with the rising housing market should we need to sell in the future.
We will rent the house fully furnished so storage is no problem.  By taking this action we have not burnt our bridges in case we need to stop living on the water.

Yes we will be continuous cruisers, traveling the vast canal system in the UK. We need the boat to be tip top so much work has been done to ensure a easy and relaxed long journey.

More to come ..
