Product Description

Synopsis

The compact interiors of canal boats require careful planning to make the best use of the small space available. This book guides readers through all the factors that need to be considered to enable them to design a layout that best meets their accommodation needs. The book provides ideas, inspiration and technical solutions for the design of accommodation in a canal boat. It will help owners to plan a new boat or to modify and improve an existing one. There are lots of ideas for maximising the available space, and photographs of boat interiors help the reader to visualise how different solutions would look. Part One looks at the design of individual areas in a narrowboat, examines the space needed for each activity, the pros and cons of each option and how the design of one area can affect another. In Part Two, 18 carefully selected case studies look at how the designer has tackled each aspect of the boat's layout. Chosen to represent many boat types, each case study includes a layout plan and photographs. Based upon 'Going to Plan', a popular series of articles published in Waterways World Britain's best-selling inland waterway magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Getting! 28 Mar 2011
By Mr-H
Format:Paperback
I purchased this book in tandem with the Narrow Builders Book. As a person about to become a live aboard dweller, this book made me ask questions,that until now I had not even thought of. After taking advice from several sources, this book opened my eyes that the little things should not be overlooked!! Its all well and good choosing the large options, cookers, Gas or Electric. But think storage, vents, trim finish, Ease of access to all parts should something go wrong under floor or behind panels.

A book well worth getting. Im sure it will save many hours of head scratching and also ensure
that ylour finished boat is tailored to your requirements.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but a bit out of date 8 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good at the basics, but is biased towards the roses & castles.
I would ask the author to produce a new updated version for the modern hi-tech people on the cut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! 20 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is brilliant for anyone who is even thinking about narrowboat building/renovation.
It is written in a very clear way - working in a logical order along the boat.
Many pictures with examples of good ideas that need to be considered.

An interesting book but not enough information or clarity within the text. A decent appendix of where to find out more information on specific issues would have been good

More that enough ideas for anyone. Each phase of a build well explained and plenty of examples. Mr Booth has done a very good job here and I thank him for his efforts.
