"Keeping Afloat" is a light-hearted tale of John Liley's exploits on the canals of France. John was working for a boating magazine when he was overcome with a dream of owning and operating a hotel-barge in France. Now, thirty years on, he tells of his often hilarious misadventures in the early days of setting up a business that would keep afloat. Characters such as The Whizzer, Mighty Min and Monsieur Bertrand would be unbelievable if they were not true. Barge enthusiasts and landlubbers alike will laugh with and at John's exploits.

“It's OK”

An interesting book in parts, but not as funny and entertaining as the comments on the rear cover make out. I felt there's a very interesting story hidden away in this account, which needs coaxing out somehow.... More
