These are the adventures of Andy and Sally Rawnsley on their narrowboat "The Puzzler". We have been living on the boat for over eight years now and are still loving it. Our Ulster born Shih Tzu, Shannon, has grown up, and has taken over the boat! After three wonderful years in Ireland, we transported The Puzzler to The Netherlands, and spent a year there. In 2015 we went southwards, to reach the north of France by June. After glorious weather throughout the summer, we arrived in Roanne in late October, and enjoyed our winter in this friendly port. We cruised extensively in France in 2016, returning to Roanne for a second winter.

Blacking The Puzzler's bottom


                                                                                                                                         

What a difference!
We scraped, pressure washed and scraped the hull to remove all the weed, aswell as any rust and loose blacking.
Catkin thought nothing of the plank access, but coped with it. The blacking is completed and we are ready to be refloated
