Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends
George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to
a 'T'. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that
lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather-forecasts and tins of
pineapple chunks – not to mention the devastation left in the wake of
J.'s small fox-terrier Montmorency.
About The Author
Jerome Klapka Jerome (1859 – 1927), was born in Walsall and
moved to London with his family when he was still a young boy. His
unusual middle name was from a Hungarian friend of his father. Jerome
left school at fourteen, after his the death of his mother. This was
not unusual in those days in poor families and Jerome's family was
certainly poor. Jerome started work as a railway clerk but had an
artistic nature and soon spent time acting with various theatre
companies – as well as reading in the British Museum library. His stage
experiences led to his first book On the Stage – and Off and to his
determination to make a living as a writer. Three Men in a Boat,
published in 1889, brought him success and worldwide fame. The critics
didn't like Jerome's humour and easy-going style but the public did.
The book was a huge bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic. Sales of
the American edition reached a million copies, even though it was being
sold there illegally! The qualities the critics disliked have now made
the book a timeless classic.
Three Men in a Boat is a fictional, and hugely exaggerated, version
of an actual boat trip up the River Thames that Jerome took with two
friends. After this book's success Jerome worked as a novelist,
playwright and editor. He made lecture tours, especially in the USA and
caused a scandal by publicly criticising the racism in the Southern
States. Three Men in a Boat was his only best-seller. It was so popular
in Germany that clubs were started for people to make their own boating
trips in the style of the trip taken by Jerome and his friends.
Three Men in a Boat is a humorous book, written by the British author Jerome K. Jerome, about a two-week boating expedition on the River Thames. The book was originally supposed to be used as a serious travel guide but that gave way to the timeless humor as Jerome kept writing it. Jerome would later write Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel to this classic book.
You can learn a great deal from others experiences. As my husband and I went through our sailboat buying experience I documented every step of our long and often times, frustrating journey. Tim has over 25 years experience as a commercial crab fisherman and journeyman ship fitter and I have a talent for researching and investigation from my former career as a real estate agent.

In this book you will discover where we found much of our information and many other things we did along the way to successfully make our dream a reality.

You will also discover how to contact the seller directly on any vessel you look at, a few creative ways of finding good deals if you are interested in a project boat, how to thoroughly inspect a vessel to locate major issues before you hire a surveyor, and much more! Our experiences were not always pleasant but we persevered and now we are living our dream. This little book is a small investment that could give you the winning edge as you look for and buy your vessel.
