The author and his two friends, George and Harris, agree that they have been working too hard and that their health in consequence is suffering. The three young men decide therefore to take a boating holiday on the Thames, starting at Kingston and ending in Oxford. They also take Montmorency, their pet terrier with them.

  Yth yw an screfor ha’y dhew gothman, Jory ha Harrys, acordys y dhe vos ow lavurya re grev i’n dedhyow dewetha hag indella aga yêhes dhe sùffra. Yma an try den yonk ytho owth ervira kemeres degolyow in scath wàr Dhowr Tamys, ow tallath dhyworth Kyngs­ton hag ow mos bys in Resohen. Ymowns y ow kemeres Montmorency, hèn yw aga broghky, gansans inwedh.

The book recounts their adventures and mishaps on the trip and is punctuated by numerous hilarious passages about, for example, being trapped in Hampton Court Maze, the unreliability of barometers, and the problems involved in learning to play the bagpipes.   Yma acownt rës i’n lyver a’ga aventurs hag a’ga drog­labmow wàr an trumach; yth yw kefys ino inwedh lies whedhel wharthus, rag en­sompel, ow tùchya bos prysonys in ker droya Lës Hampton, andhiogeleth baro­metrow, ha’n problemow usy ow pertainya dhe dhesky an pîbow sagh.
Three Men in a Boat was first published in 1889 and has never been out of print since—a remarkable testimony to its popularity.   Y feu Tredden in Scath dyllys rag an kensa prës i’n vledhen 1889 ha nyns êth ev bythqweth mes a brynt dhia an termyn-na — dùstuny apert a’y vos meur­gerys gans pùb henath.
