Abstract:

'Oh, you live on a boat? I bet that's cold in the winter...' 'It must be great being so close to nature...' 'It must be fantastic to be able to go wherever you like, whenever you like...' NARROW ESCAPE sets out to dispel these common public myths. From how to avoid assassination by ninja stealth ducklings, through definitive proof that kittens are aliens and the best way to sleep at forty-five degrees, to the importance of having the right boating equipment (a child's plastic sledge and a never-ending supply of cotton wool balls), this month-by-month account of one family's liveaboard year takes a firmly tongue-in-cheek look at the 'idyllic' life on a narrow boat.
