Description - The Narrowboat Guide by Tony Jones

The UK has over 1000 miles of navigable canals and rivers which are home to an estimated 70,000 boats. To the untrained eye canal boats can all look much the same, but there are some very important distinctions and a new buyer has some important choices to make. This book discusses those choices, taking into consideration the various boating profiles. 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.

Author Biography - Tony Jones

Tony Jones has lived aboard his narrowboat The Watchman for ten years and has travelled the inland waterways network extensively, enjoying a wealth of experiences and a steep learning curve. In that time he has covered over 500 miles of canals and rivers, navigated around 400 locks and moveable bridges, sunk once, ran aground four times and broken down more often than he would like to remember. He thinks that it is unlikely that he will ever live on dry land again. He is the author of The Liveaboard Guide also published by Adlard Coles Nautical.
