Location, Location, Location

Are you about to get married?
Are you a city banker?
Always dreamt of living on the high seas?
Love the dining out/ wine bar scene?
Love to shop?
Have you got loads of money?
Read on for I have found the location of your dreams.
The good ship MV Dana for sale at £950,000 ($1.42million) and no Americans it does not include half  the City of London. Connected to all services and even has it`s own post/zip code. It is located at West India Quay which is on the R. Thames that connects to the high seas. The price by the way does not include the mooring fee. As far as I can find out on the web the mooring fee is circa £12,000 ($18,000) per annum.
Standing at the end of your property you have if your in the banking business a view of your work place assuming it`s the HSBC tower.
To your left plenty of wine bars and restaurants in what were the old dock warehouses. Also just out of shot to the left is the Docklands museum where you can have a pleasant look around at the history of the London docks, and it`s free says Jaq.
To your right you have the Canary Wharf tower and loads of shopping if you have loads of money which you must have to be reading my sales pitch.
Oh! I nearly forgot you have your own private bridge into Canary Wharf. Well ok owing to some legal thingy called right of way a few thousand others use the bridge daily.
To the rear of the property you have easy access to the floating church. Not sure if they do marriages but........

Just next door your neighbours can arrange your marriage on  MV Leven is Strijd and hold the reception.

Hi Both,
I have been reading your blog for a while and now we have our own boat and are out and about at the moment. I remember reading that you had had an Airhead compost loo fitted. We have one also and have been going for about two weeks. I was wondering how it has been going for you. How long did it last before having to start again? What did you do with the contents when it was full? Did you store it until fully composted, and how did you dispose of it? We are currently in Coventry Basin and have been heading slowly north so it is unlikely that we will bump into you but I am enjoying the blog. Best regards, Tony and Helen Porter.

looks like a great deal to me. I'd take it except I'd miss the sun and green stuff.
Tulips finally open in Pullman. Karen

I'll take it!
Only if it will fit in the cargo
bay of a cargo 747.

I'll have to get a bubbler system
for around the hull so it doesn't freeze in the winter as well.

So what is the beam and length?
Weight in tonnes?

Wonder what it would look like in a lock of 660 feet in length with a
beam of 72 feet?

Small no doubt.

All in jest, oh and guess there'd
be some form of export tax as well,

Hello NB Holderness!! Welcome to life on the Waterways! If you will email me at I will respond in full to Airhead queries. We love ours and cannot imagine why every boat doesn't have one! We've added you to our boater's blog list and your posts will roll on our site as well. We look forward to following your blog!

Hi Karen,
Have the red tulips bloomed yet? One of my co-workers said "It always snows on the red tulips" Once those have come and gone it should be safe to assume spring really has finally arrived in Pullman, Washington!
Love and hugs,
Jaq and Les

Hi Bryce,
did you see the comment I addressed directly to you in my previous post about NB Indigo Dreaming? If not go back and take a look!

Believe I replied regarding the NB designed for the tall gentleman; perhaps I sent it to Les instead? Ask him...

My problem is at least another four
inches in height over your friend at six foot four inches. My late father was that height as is my younger brother who is an American along with his Luxemborg born wife and lives in the Houston Texas area.

Mind like my ffiend Mike Muir on Garnet, I too have physical ailments from past problems; hence a NB would not be a good idea.
Mind that does not rule out a visit to the UK to see Garnet and Valerie as well. Maybe next year. Have spent far too much money on a new 1000 square foot bungalow here in Burlington, Ontario. House prices here in Ontario equal the UK in many instances.


It is sunny here today, however the temperature is about 5 degrees Celsius,
and we had a sprinkling of snow. Our flowers have just started however it is still far too cold for most growth of plants. Unlike years prior.
