New for 2012
EuroCanals Guides Online Library The new guides below as well as 37 other guides and articles previously published are now available to subscribers. With an annual subscription to the EuroCanals Guides Online Library you will have access at any time, from any computer, to the full range of guides. You can view each guide on your laptop, iPad or other tablet, or even a public computer; you are not limited to a home computer or the need to carry a CD disc. You do not need to store the file on a computer (of course you can do that if you wish) as you can download the file repeatedly, without limit. The guides in the Library are updated throughout the year as necessary. On the title page there are Notices of scheduled or emergency canal closures, high or low water situations or other advisories, updated throughout the year. Subscribers will receive an email alert for new notices. Subscribe

Online Slideshows While many full-color photos are included in each EuroCanals Guide, the number of photos is limited by the overall file size. New guides are now supported by online slideshows with up to 100 photos or more. The slideshows are accessed from links in the guide. The Burgundy/Central France and Eastern France guides are fully supported by new slideshows which show details that may be of interest to canal travelers, such as the locks, ports and even the actual type of dock used at a mooring. See the Sample Guide
Fuel Stations The lack of availability of fuel for boats in France often comes as a surprise to visitors from other countries; careful planning is needed when traveling through the waterway network. Maps and the tables in the above guides show the towns where fuel can be purchased, with directions to and telephone numbers for the station. See the Sample Guide
Cruising Logs in the above guides, as well as some portions of Belgium, give a kilometer-by-km listing of features along the waterway, such as bridges, towns, ports/haltes, canalized/river sections, fuel stations and more. The logs are very useful for planning each day's travel.
