Author Information

Jim Batty is a photographer, graphic designer and writer who has lived on, worked on and continuously cruised a 53-foot narrowboat with his partner and their cat for the past nine years. The book answers a distillation of all the queries he has fielded on an almost daily basis since moving aboard - through towpath and lockside conversations with young couples, those close to retirement, single men and women of all ages, young families, tourists, as well as talking with a host of inquisitive (and initially uncomprehending) friends, relatives and colleagues. Everyone, it seems, wants to know exactly what the live aboard life is like: inside and out.
