Book Description

9 Mar 2010
Living afloat on inland canals, rivers and waterways is a popular choice throughout the UK and Europe, and its popularity is growing. Attracted for financial, environmental or lifestyle reasons, there are now so many people wanting to sell up and live on the water that there are waiting lists for permanent berths. Bill and Laurel Cooper are the experts on living afloat. Practising what they preach, they have lived aboard a variety of boats throughout the Europe for over 30 years. Covering UK, European and American inland waterways, they offer practical, first-hand expert advice on: suitable boats; likely costs; rules and regulations; insurance considerations; pros and cons of the 'liveaboard' lifestyle; dealing with health and other problems; provisioning; and, much, much more. With anecdotes from their own experiences to illustrate their points, as well as maps, sketches and photographs, the Coopers can help anyone dreaming of selling up and cruising the inland waterways to make that dream become a reality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful starter 18 Jun 2011
By bitmap
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A useful book for anyone thinking of taking up this lifestyle. The authors have a lot direct experience and the book covers most aspects of inland cruising from boat maintenance tasks to the practicalities of shopping and cooking aboard. I would have used it as more of a reference work if it hadn't literally fallen apart after the first read. The binding is very cheaply done and half the pages just fell out making it very difficult to flick through, especially if you've put the runaway pages back in the wrong order.

This is an interesting read and is well written. I would say that it is of less help to those looking to cruise uk waters, but I enjoyed it none the less.
