Narrowboat Guide - A complete guide to choosing, designing and maintaining a narrowboat
By Tony Jones
Although canal boats can all look very similar, there are important distinctions and the buyer has some important choices to make. From those choosing to live on board permanently, to constant cruisers, weekend boaters and fair-weather cruisers, each will require a different type of boat if they are to fully enjoy their vessel.
The book covers finding and buying a boat, the legalities of purchase, the different features and utilities, finding a mooring, boating health and safety, the cost of boating, boat maintenance, boating etiquette and many other frequently asked questions. This is the inside story on buying, maintaining and using a narrowboat from someone who has done so for more than seven years.
