I have just ordered a critical piece of kit for life aboard a narrowboat in the winter, yes, the chainsaw! Last winter we were the beneficiaries of someone else's forward planning, namely the crew of NB. Matilda Rose who had a chainsaw. As travelling companions through the winter months we got to use the free fuel that we were able to find and that the 'MR chainsaw' made usable. This year we are equipping Caxton so that we can pull our weight when it comes to cutting and sharing the wood harvest.
