            'A colourful and comprehensive guide to life on the waterways. Practical, pretty and accessible, it's charmingly designed while providing excellent advice.' BBC Countryfile Magazine Full-time life on a narrowboat is a novelty for so many of us, and is endlessly fascinating. How d...o people downsize their lives and belongings into what looks like a large, crayon-coloured floating toy-box? Narrowboat Life answers all the questions we've wanted to ask about the ins and outs of liveaboard life on the inland waterways. The book is filled with beautiful, enthralling photography of the waterways themselves, the narrowboats that occupy them and, most importantly, every nook and cranny of their insides. Should you become seduced, the author gives solid hands-on advice about how to make a narrowboat your home. Accompanying these absorbing images, the playful and always informative text satisfies our curiosity to know, among other things: * How do you fit all of your stuff into such a restricted space? * How much does a narrowboat cost? * How do you hold down a job if you're always on the move? * Does s/he (the cat, dog, parrot) live on the boat as well? * Is it cold in the winter? This revised edition of Narrowboat Life features new and expanded sections on ecological living on the waterways - recycling, upcycling and living green - and living aboard in cities versus living on-land, as well as new profiles of more beautiful boats.

            Shipwrecks litter the coasts and reefs of New Zealand. Disasters at sea are no longer the regular occurrence they were in the days when sea travel was the main means of coastal and international transport, yet recent wrecks like the Rena show that perils remain. Shipwrecked retel...ls the voyages of ships doomed never to make their next port, in a jacketed hardback featuring plentiful photos and ephemera - including Eric Heath's superb colour illustrations of notable ships lost to the sea.
