About Me

My photo
The name describes my demeanour and voice! I love narrowboating and that is why this blog is mainly about the boat and our interaction with it. I have been keeping a log for Sonflower ever since we bought her and moved onto her as our main residence. Some incidents in our boating life have been hilarious, some scary and some down right dangerous. I cannot tell what will come in the future but you can now share them! The crew are an 'ordinary' couple. The Best Mate and I.

Three Mobile Broadband

No not an advert. I don't know whether it is any good yet but I have subscribed to 3 mobile broadband.Hopefully it will help keep up to date with the blogging.

I have checked their network map and find that the coverage has improved no end since my last sortie into the north Midlands and the Shropshire Union. No 3G coverage in Froghall yet though! The main problem could be getting a signal inside the steel tube that is a narrowboat. The modem states quite clearly that it is not waterproof so dangling it outside a window on the end of a USB cable doesn't seem an option.

I'll giveit a go and see whether I can keep a reasonable log of travels etc through the summer. That is when we get the boat out of the boatyard!
