Product Description

Ever dream of an idyllic life living aboard a canal boat on Britain's waterways system but not quite sure how to start? Vaughan Tucker's How to live on a Canal Boat, an alternative lifestyle is for you.
The author has lived on canal boats in the UK for over 20 years. His book gives an insight into what it's really like living on a canal boat; the pros and cons and the costs. Waterways living has many advantages, but there are ups and downs to living on a canal boat. You'll find here all the tips you need to avoid the worst of the potential disasters of canal life. He's made all the mistakes, so you don't have to.
Here you will find out what it's like living on a boat full-time in winter in Britain, and whether you are the right sort of person to take on life on the canal.
You'll find out about discovering the boat that's right for you, the costs, the various heating types, what you'll need to get a licence, dealing with locks, the dreaded subject of toilets and how a wheelbarrow and a generator can become your best friends.
Click on the Look Inside feature to see what this guide to living on a canal boat can offer.
Vaughan Tucker can tell you what it's really like living on a canal boat, and he can also tell you about the beauty of the waterways, and the sometimes magical life it can be.

HASH(0xa1d54390) out of 5 stars So Jealous March 6 2015
By Jo - Published on Amazon.com

I have always dreamed of running away from home, going to England and living on the canals. This book has carried me further. I may never achieve but after reading this book I will know what to do and expect. It was well written in an easily understood manner. Enjoyed the personal stories he included, it made it much easier to see a picture clearly in my mind instead of just techno jargon. Well done Sir, well done.

Given that we're in the process of departing Africa permanently for the UK, and that our intention is to purchase a live aboard/cruiser narrowboat, I found this an informative and humorous read, capturing perfectly the sort of lifestyle we hope to live.

He answers so many questions on narrowboat life. Boats have their own tricks and this book helps uncover some of the ones that are surprises that aren't best learnt first hand.
