  • Published on Jan 14, 2022
  • In October last year (2021), my friends Jo and Michael (plus dog George) completed a four year epic trip around every navigable mile of the connected UK canal network. Along with many of their viewers, I went along to document the final five miles.

      @P Offutt Leicester in the UK is always pronounced 'Lie-sester' by visiting Americans, so 'Lee-sester' really is odd!

    Near the end of 2020 I found CruisingTheCut. I was in a very dark place. Now, looking back, I realize this channel saved my life. Thank you David for sharing your peace.

    Like many who have followed the journey of @MinimalList, I am enchanted. They introduced the world to aspects of England that have highlighted its charm and character. Well done for them! And thank you David for documenting the moment. This is a most worthwhile video. Excellent journalism.

    I've watched Jo, Michael and George almost from the beginning and to my mind their achievement is nothing short of heroic. I'm surprised that the CRT didn't celebrate such an epic journey. At least you did them proud with this Vlog. Well done David.
    All the best. Stephen👍

    Thanks for that Dave. Jo and Micheal's cruising vlogs are back in time a ways, and the reno is progressing more recently, so nice to see the dramatic finish. Just glorious to see the volunteers coming out, and of course, George enjoying his new balls.

    Lovely documentary. As well as I have been following you since you bought your narrowboat, I have been following Jo and Michael on their whole journey around GB since they started. It has been a wonderfull trip and I am looking forward to be along with both you and Perserverance for the time to come in the future.
    Thank you - both teams - for some lovely moments.

    It's been a few months since I last visited your vlog. Glad I did and felt that I was home again. Yours is the most informative, useful and interesting site of it's kind. Although I live in Kansas, USA, where there are no canals, I feel very much at home watching your channel and your many adventures, experiences, instructions, lessons and advice come to mind. Thank you for being there. Laird Wilcox

    What an accomplishment! It's fun to see Jo and Michael (and you, David) being treated like celebrities by your viewer volunteers. Sure, there are Kardashians for humbler folk, but us canal groupies have REAL celebrities.

  • Andrew Ecob

    So pleased for them that they achieved it, pandemic notwithstanding! We met them on the Chesterfield and they were lovely. Now we need to buy them a mini narrowboat so they can trailer it to all the non-connected waterways like the Monmouth and Brecon 😄

  • Matthew Bartlett
    Matthew Bartlett 4 months ago +1

    I do miss your cruising, but I love the direction you're taking the channel, too. Being in the US, we have nothing like the canals network you have over there, so seeing them and hearing their history and modern cultural impact is so wonderful.

    David, you do such a wonderful job with your videos. I can't think of anyone I'd have rather had documenting Michael and Jo's accomplishment. Those two are such nice people. We're for Utah, USA and met them at Barbridge Junction on our two week Four Counties Ring hire adventure. I know we were delaying them but they took an hour out of their day and spent it with us. Canal people are great people.

    Two of Michael's three top canal experiences I viewed right here! The third I viewed after sticking with them after the Wash crossing. Thanks for commerating the conclusion of their epic voyage. A really delightful couple and a joyful dog! They've given us a lot of wonderful videos and while I'll maybe not view them all, I will enjoy some of their adventures pre-Wash. I shall be looking to do the Kennet and Avon cruises after they've posted the last of their series. I understand they are planning to sell Perseverance. Maybe some museum should buy it?

    I love watching these CruisingTheCut videos (From Boston, MA) I find the canal’s to be peaceful & relaxing. As I watch I can see myself as a canal boat captain bravely taking my wife & 2 cats for a 1-year tour. Except I need a long hot shower twice a day, I need a vigorous morning exercise & being Finnish I have to have a sauna at least twice a week. If these amenities were along the canal, then I could spend time on the canal.

    It was great to meet up with you and to assist Michael and Jo complete their epic voyage. The number of supporters definitely grew from us few that started at the bottom lock. And it was surprising how far some of them had travelled! It was a testament to how, over the four years, an impact Michael and Jo's (not forgetting George) vlogs have made on new, old or love-the-idea viewers all over the world. Many thanks for another great video👍🏻

    It should not have surprised me one bit that you would be on hand to document Jo and Michael's completing of their epic journey. I mean, it did -- slightly -- but it shouldn't have.
    What was definitely NOT surprising was that this was yet another excellent mini-documentary the likes of which we've come to expect from your channel. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you David for the journalistic eye. Until the reno videos we haven't had a lot of close up footage of the boat. It has definitely Persevered and has earned it's full refit. It makes one appreciate the details you've covered, like painting the roof! Your new video format is content rich and satisfying like chocolate mousse! Cheers.

    David was my first vlogger I've ever seen a narrowboating video from 5? 6? years ago. Jo & Michael are the 2nd and have watched both channels since. It was nice to see David vlogging and the channel crossover. Actually got a little choked with pride for them when they crossed the line... maybe I think I sipped my waterglass wrong causing my eyes to well up a bit... yeah... that's it.

Thank you again.

    There needs to be some sort of displayable symbol that one shows when they have accomplished this. Much like the clean sweep in baseball and submarine warfare, or shooting ones hat off the catapult on a carrier …. Perhaps a flag with a Möbius strip canal on it?

    So I wonder if they did the last part on the Caldon canal and went though the Froghall Tunnel? I think that part is acceptable to leave that last part out. :)
    BTW thanks for doing the voice over back in 2020. Meant a lot to me. :) I'll have G&T now and hope 2022 will be a fantastic year for all of us. cheers.

    Great video and well done Perseverance - Ive walked a lot of the Grand Union these past two years and last year (about the same time as you) my walk included the Northampton Arm. It's strange walking "under" the M1 and whoever designed those up/down inclines must be a friend of Chris Bonington. Great video, great channel (or should that be "cut") - love the videos and your great sense of humour. Keep up the good work.

  • Dave McCracken

    Thank you, David. I found your channel because the weird TheXvid algorithm decided that one of your early boat fixing videos was perfect for a woodworker like me. Turns out it was right, of course. That led me to Jo and Michael, my only other narrow boating interest. So thanks for the inadvertent introduction to them, and a continued thanks for the good story telling.
