Summary

This is an indispensable handbook for anyone living afloat. The aim of this beautifully illustrated guide is to help people live the dream and not the nightmare, providing a useful step-by-step illustrated guide on the basics of getting afloat and staying there. The book covers the different types of craft available to the buyer and their good and bad points, and discusses such practicalities as moorings, engines (including basic maintenance and fault finding), laying out and furnishing a boat, heating and cooking, types of fuel and stoves, safety, options on sanitation, electrics, hull blacking, painting, water tanks, survival tips, and finances. This is a must-have guide for anyone wishing to get onto the water, as well as those already living there.
