You may find yourself changing a gas bottle on your narrowboat, but it’s not difficult when you know how.

Depending on which holiday boat you’ve hired, the gas is used for cooking and/or heating, so you may get through more in the winter months. Here, Aaran shows how it’s done.


Narrowboat Beginner Guides

We are delighted that more and more narrowboat novices are enjoying the canals around Market Harborough. We are putting together a series of Beginner Guides to help you prepare for your holiday and find a few solutions to common problems en route.

It is also a good idea to familiarise yourself with the Canal and River Trust’s Boaters’ Handbook before you arrive.

We offer all kinds of narrowboats, from Day Boats to Boutique Narrowboats and boats suitable for families. All our hires involve full training and we welcome complete beginners.
