Lots of people live very happily aboard narrowboats, personally I couldn’t, I find them quite hard work and I like more space. We have had a boat for about 15 years, love the boat but not boating! The constant filling of the water tanks and emptying of foul waste is a chore, and they do require a lot of maintenance if you want to keep them looking nice. The waterways have become very busy now and it is a nightmare in the summer, both with the locks and finding a good spot to moor up. Maybe hire one for a couple of weeks to see how you get on. Good luck, it might be the life for you.
