The Nar­row­boat Guide is a guide to all aspects of buy­ing and own­ing a nar­row­boat – from ini­tial choice ( New? Ex-hire? Cruiser? Semi-trad?) through gas, wa­ter, heat­ing and cook­ing sys­tems, fea­tures and fit­tings, the vexed ques­tion of which type of toi­let to get, moor­ings, boat han­dling ba­sics, and how to make space for ev­ery­thing on­board. There are chap­ters on boat main­te­nance, keep­ing pets on board, and liv­ing afloat. And through­out the book there are handy check­lists, quotes from real boaters, FAQs and the au­thor’s ‘Tow­path tales’ – anec­dotes with a mes­sage. And for those look­ing to live afloat, the same au­thor’s 2012 book TheLive­aboard­Guide has just been reprinted, too.
