This is the second video in our series on how we make our Narrowboat cruising vlogs. In this episode I talk about how I do the rough edit and voice over. I know not everyone will be interested in these videos but as you can imagine I have a bit more time on my hands while we are in lockdown and i have enjoyed making a different style of video. As we have not been allowed to cruise I am not able film any new cruising vlogs but I do have 4 or 5 that we filmed before lock down that I still need to edit so they will be following in the next few weeks.

269 - Ambushed at Thorne Lock by Lots of Little Land Lubbers

In todays vlog we we travel from Barnby Dun to Thorne on the Sheffield & South Yorkshire Navigation. Its a very cold day in January and we need diesel so we turn onto the Stainforth and Keadby Canal so we can visit Stanilands Marina.
Then its just a short hop to the moorings in Thorne but at the lock we come across a school who appear to be on a field trip and so Michael ends up holding a spontaneous Q&A in the lock.

A bit of a different video today. While in lockdown we have a little bit of extra time on our hands and a couple of people suggested they would like to see a video about how we make our vlogs. This is Part One and I talk about the equipment we use and how we manage our media. In the next part of the series we will talk about the actual editing process. If you have any questions about any thing we talk about, please comment down below.

Thanks for watching - Jo
