Hello, my name is Tearlach, but everyone calls me Tee. I am a film maker living in London on a Canal boat.
During your stay
The WC is a cassette toilet which would usually have to be emptied by the host every 3- 5 days depending on the length of your stay. Water is held in a tank on-board and needs topping up every two weeks (depending on your usage). This will be done by your host.
In the winter months heating is by the solid fuel stove which burns a combination of smokeless coal and logs which are provided. The stove can be controlled and kept going 24 hours but you need to allow for this in your daily routine....ie loading stove before going out and a little attention on your return. It keeps the boat warm and cosy. An eco fan assists circulation. Living on board is not quite like a conventional house and needs an understanding and patience- it may therefore not be for everyone. Power is supplied from batteries a 12v system which means appliances that we take for granted such a hair dryers can't be used but laptops and phones are fine!
Essentially, power isn't on tap as we're used to in our homes.
If the power runs down the engine will need to be started to charge up the batteries. If there are any problems the host will be on call to assist.
