I recently became the proud owner of a 42ft narrowboat. I’m a marine scientist so have always loved being by the water! So a watery home has always been the dream.
My life changed 6 years ago when I started volunteering and travelling through workaway and wwoof; I met amazing people and found myself through the connections I made. I battled depression, an eating disorder and a lifetime of not really knowing myself. I always promised myself, when I have a home I will return the favour...
So here I am. My beautiful boat needs some love, and I’d love to teach some skills in return! I’m especially interested in hearing from people on a similar life path to me, who just need room to grow! But all energies considered. My boat jemima needs help to become “serenity” which I can eventually use as a resource to help others heal and flourish.
Join me to sand or paint, to “sail”, all with a chat, a coffee and nourishing food.

You will learn boat skills!! Maintenance, diy, decorating, even cooking! And if I can get a proper coffee machine on board we can practise latte art!
My boat is currently moored in Lincoln and I need to move her to Gloucestershire. I’ll be doing maintenance along the way. And of course piloting and locks will be part of the day! We travel during daylight, moor where we can at night. Sometimes it’ll be remote, other times in cities, and never rushed.
Anyone with skills would be a bonus (carpentry, decorating, electrical), but a willing heart is more important than experience. It’s a basic lifestyle though, so think floating camping!
Boat. You can take my bed, I’ll be happy on the sofa
When we moor you can explore wherever we end up! I’ll try to put a bike on board, but people happy to walk would be happiest
