'If you have ever wanted to take a boat through the French Canals, this is the book to show you how to do it. It sets out in detail the boats that are most suitable for cruising the inland waterways of France, (and boats that are not), how much they cost and the equipment needed; the sort of people who make the trip - many without previous experience - and the boats they go in; planning needed and documents required; how to navigate the French waterways; detailed guidance on how to negotiate the various types of locks; cost of living; what to take; when to go.
Detailed routes. Maps. Fully illustrated.'
