 NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BOAT OWNERS

Listening to boat owners, Speaking out for boat owners, Representing boat owners.

We are delighted to make a new guide available written for the guidance of leisure boaters on commercial waterways. It covers and Yorkshire and the Trent Commercial Navigations.

This is mainly for pleasure boat skippers unaccustomed to rivers, tides and waterways carrying freight.
The advice is given in good faith and no liability can be accepted for any consequences of its use.

You can download it here.

It cannot be comprehensive in a booklet of this size so you should gather as much information as you can from other sources including CRT’s Boater’s Handbook, charts, tide tables, experienced personnel and other publications.
