Well I jumped off one pi$$ed in the River Avon at Bristol about 30 years ago.

Big risk of viells disease apparently.

Or so said the policeman who met me at the quayside anyway:D

Back in 2005, there was a young guy in his thirties called Scraggy who lived on an old working boat on Trent & Mersey Canal at Fradley Junction. He started with flu like symptoms and died within three weeks of Weils Disease which is spread via rats urine. :eek:

I fell off the back of my boat on the Broads once, the wife said one minute I was there then she heard a strangled cry of "Aaaaaagh" and I'd disappeared. Does that count?

A few years back a guy fell over the back of a cruiser sterned hire boat whilst attempting to turn the boat round in the winding hole at Alrewas on the T&M Canal. He died as a result of injuries sustained when his upper body came into contact with the propeller which was still engaged with the engine i.e. in gear. :eek:
