Home Choosing Buying Improving Cruising Selling Links


In the unlikely event that you have found this site without knowing much about the Inland Waterways of the UK, then you will find the web a very helpful place to find information about the subject. For some reason that a sociolgist will no doubt be able to explain, people interested in the waterways are often interested in computers. Please don't think that this is even an attempt at a comprehensive list - this page is really a collection of My Favourities, so I can find them when not at my own computer.
