About Me


My name is Daniel Hutchinson and I am 27year old Graduate Design Engineer working for JCB, including a recent secondment to Delhi to manage the engineering of the first ever Telescopic Handler to be introduced into the Indian market. I graduated in 2010 having complemented a 5 year Masters in Mechanical Engineering at Loughborough and have a keen interest in all things mechanical as well as boats, engines and canals. 

I live in Uttoxeter in Staffordshire and spend much of my spare time working or boating on a number of narrowboats including our own; EmilyAnne, a dutch barge style steam narrowboat build in 1991 by my Grandfather, as well as a large number of ex-working narrowboats. I also own and maintain an Westfield kitcar with which I compete nationally in Autosolo events, Mountain bike frequently, Sail, and am a founder member of the YWBS who work to network with others and to promote canals and working boats to the younger generations.

Having been promoted from Member to Moderator and then Assistant Administrator, I acquired ownership of CanalWorld forums from the sites founder Jon Belcher in 2009. Since then I have thought to continue the great work that Jon did and maintain the forum as the great resource that is has begun, developing and improving it as required.
