About the Author:

Bill and Laurel Cooper have lived aboard a variety of boats for over 30 years, both seagoing - crossing the Atlantic seven times, and inland - sailing the Hudson River, the Rhone, the Rhine, the Danube, and the Thames, as well as the French canals. They are the authors of SELL UP AND SAIL, which went through five editions. They've also written two books on European travel.

Review:

With anecdotes from their own experiences to illustrate their points, as well as maps, sketches and photographs, the Coopers can help anyone dreaming of selling up and cruising the inland waterways to make that dream become a reality. (All At Sea)

Authors of the popular Sell Up and Sail (five editions), the Coopers have been living aboard boats for more than 30 years. Their experiences have been ocean-going and, as this book illustrates, on rivers and canals. They write of waterways in general, describe the various types of motor cruisers, workboats, or narrowboats, where to find them and what to look for. They give advice on building or converting, surveying, power and heating, essential equipment, maintenance and, of course, living aboard, and everything that that entails. Learn about barge handling, canal systems, locks and waterways in many countries, and heed the warnings on the risks and dangers of such travel. It could save you embarrassment; it might even save your life. There are several 'interludes' in the book, such as 'Dining in Burgundy,' 'The River Shannon,' or 'The Intracoastal Waterway of the USA,' which offer insights into just a handful of places they have visited. Pictures and delightful sketches support a writing style that is laid back, almost like a family chat at times, making for a very useful and quite enjoyable read. (Sailing)

A wow! of a book- the definitive, how-to guide to cruising inland waterways. (Blue Flag Magazine)
