NARROWBOAT LIFE


NARROWBOAT LIFE

JIM BATTY    Book Number: 91759    Product format: Paperback

If you have been enchanted by the narrowboat travels of actors Prunella Scales and her husband Timothy West and their Great Canal Journeys, you will love this charmingly designed book. It is written by Jim Batty who is a boating and waterways photographer, graphic designer, writer and philosopher whose home for the past ten years has been a cruising 53ft narrowboat which he shares with his partner and their cat. He takes us on a daily diary of life on board through towpath and lock side conversations answering delightfully nosey questions. We find out how you fit all your stuff into such a restricted space, how much a narrowboat costs, how you can hold down a job if you're always on the move, how your pet cat, dog or parrot can live on the boat as well, and if it is cold in the winter. This new edition covers more on costs, ecological living and boat interiors, the comforts of living afloat in cities and countryside compared to living on land and new profiles on evermore beautiful boats with their glossy paintwork, plants, and well appointed interiors, many with an arc of books, colourful carpets, beautifully painted furniture and blinds, comfy chairs plus of course the all-important loo systems, delightful boat names, recycled and repurposed narrowboats, all about heating and water, minimal consumption and maximum pleasure. 'Rejoice in some decorated water cans, designer dog beds or sparkly solar lights.' 224 page large format square softback packed with gloriously dreamy waterside colour photos.
