Proper narrow boats are really really long, making communication between the stern and the bow a mobile phone affair! With the woman in the prow separated from the man at the helm, husband and wife crews live in their own little parallel worlds as the boat drifts gently along.
It doesn’t take too much to imagine the scene from my window - wife daydreaming in the front fantasising about some long lost sexual adventure and, 75 feet behind her bringing up the rear, the husband staring wistfully down the roof wondering "when are we going to reach the next decent pub?"

Husband obviously had his last long lost sexual adventure in a pub. Nothing sexier than the shape of a proper pint pot, and that’s the long and thin of it.
