This book was one of 3 I purchased after becoming interested in narrowboats to a degree of needing to know the ins and outs, pros and cons etc of narrowboats. Being an engineer (non boating) and also a camper van owner i had a bit of knowledge of the type of systems that may be found but needed more detailed, in depth info such as Engines - what types do you get, makers, electricss, boat construction, legal side and the type of stuff boaters would probally talk about over a pint.

I,m glad to say i found all the answers in this book. It is a mine of information and is loaded with pictures and technical info about all the things found in a typical narrowboat or similar craft.

There are appendixes with boat yards, engine makers and types - the lot. and a very helpful section about buying your first boat.

I can only think that the author Graham Booth must have a wealth of experience judging by the info in this book.

I would recommend this book to anyone as a brilliant addition to thier library and it will be put to use in mine for years to come.

Well done

As a prospective owner this was a very useful purchase. Narrowboats aren't cheap and for newcomers there are a bewildering number of things to consider when venturing onto the cut. This book covers most areas in enough depth for you to formulate a checklist of requirements and sensible questions. Useful lists of suppliers and websites as well.

we bought this as we were just about to buy our first narrowboat and ever since the decision to buy was taken we have been looking for information to assist us. This book has been a great help. Obviously we will need more detail on most issues as time goes on but this is an extremely useful book to start off with and to keep for a reference. It does not go into a frightening amount of technical detail - it would be impossible in a book this size, but good for beginners. There is a lot of information on buying and planning brand new boats, which was not quite so relevant to us as we bought second-hand, but informative all the same.
