Amfortas kindly sent me this:

As a canalboat
No need for navlights, so cooking is initially via generator powered AC devices and later gas canister stove, houselights are individually powered by batteries – I’ve tested these already and they work well, give long hours in LED -two lanterns are wind-up type
As well as the generator is the outboard at a pinch but I don’t want to rig that up and compromise it.
Water is via the 100 ten litre water carriers I have – one has been sitting there full for two months now – and that supplies me with enough ballast for the boat too on the canal [to stop rocking]. Remembering I have four pontoons supporting the sides as well.…
