What this site is about

This site is, essentially, a build and travel blog for the narrowboat "the cat who walks by himself", commissioned in (very) late 2006 as a lined sailaway from The New Boat Company, who were then brokers for the now defunct Liverpool Boats. Being the first time I'd ventured onto the canals, and the first time I'd taken on such a project, my original intention was to document all my pratfalls and mistakes so others could avoid them. The previous version of this site failed to live up to that ambition, and I hope I've rectified it in this re-vamp.

My "lessons learned" can be found in the Whoops! section. The other areas are hopefully more self explanatory. Enjoy.
