This beautifully illustrated and highly practical guide is the ideal starting point for anyone considering a home afloat and has been written to help them live the dream and avoid potential nightmares. This book sets out a handy step by step guide, from basics such as differences between different types of boat and the costs of getting a float and staying there, through to more day-to-day considerations such as maintenance, cooking, heating and sanitation, and deeper reflections on what it takes to make a success of life afloat.
