We are Kevin and Linda Trott from Somerset, and yes, you've guessed already, we're wurzels, swede bashers, turnip cutters etc., and we even have the proper accent.
I work shifts in a local factory doing maintenance and breakdowns, and occasionally some design and development work which is far more interesting. I have a machine shop at home where I can pursue a facet to my other interest, radio controlled model aircraft, where I make my own engines.
Linda is retired and she makes sample greetings cards for a TV channel and cards for sale in a local market and at car boot sales. Those that don't sell go to charity. She also looks after me, feeds me, washes my clothes, cleans our house, tends the garden etc., she tells me the list is endless.
We became involved in narrowboats way back in 1979 when we hired a six berth boat on the River Wey for our Honeymoon. It was brilliant, and we've been narrowboating most years since.
