Product Description

Product Description

An account of the design, build and use of an award winning liveaboard narrowboat. After living aboard their first Braidbar boat, the authors decided they wanted a bigger one. Building Sanity Again is an honest account of the whole process of designing and building the boat of their dreams, based on the blog kept at the time.

It has been brought up to date after eighteen months aboard, and the final chapter describes how the boat has performed in practice.

An invaluable guide to anyone considering the liveaboard life style, or commissioning a new narrowboat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Narrowboat Fit Out in useful steps 12 Oct 2014
By Ade
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great read, 1st ebook I have bought.
The only thing missing was the pictures in the text where they would of been as originally written.
That said there was a link to flickr where the pictures are located.So I could see how it all happened but that was only disappointment. A useful resource to if you are toying with the idea of fitting out a narrowboat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!! 23 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For anyone who is dreaming - or actually taking part in - of having a narrowboat built, it is a good read!! I didn't realise how many things there would have been to think of!

All that was needed - a few stories along the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Familiar Strangers... 31 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Having stumbled upon Bruce & Sheila's blog a while ago (full of post 1st time boating enthusiasm) - I've really enjoyed reading through this.

In parts, it's like scanning through a letter from an old friend... by that I mean the writing style is comforting and familiar from the blog but brought together in a more structued way.

We're still 30 months off having enough money to buy our boat but when we get closer, I'm sure I'll be referring back to this. In the the meantime, next on my reading list is Sheila's prose.

Keep up the good work and I hope one day to bump into (although hopefully not literally) you on the cut...what dreams may come.

Big licks to Sally!
