A Beginners' Guide to Living on the Waterways Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

An estimated 15,000 people live on board boats in the UK and at any one time thousands more are interested in doing so.

The aim of this beautifully illustrated guide is to help people live the dream and not the nightmare, providing a useful step by step introduction to the basics of making a life afloat. Fully updated this new edition of A Beginners' Guide to Living on the Waterways covers different types of liveaboard craft suitable for canals, rivers and estuaries, and the good and bad points of the different options.

It goes on to discuss practicalities such as moorings, engines (including basic maintenance and fault finding), heating and cooking, sanitation, furnishing a boat, survival tips and finances.

This is a must-have guide for all those considering the alternative way of living that a boat offers, as well as those who are already there!
