"Dive, dive, dive!"

BELIEVE it or not it's a narrowboat, pictured by John Whitehead near Botany Bay on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.

With John telling our Brian Holmes that after hearing about it he was so intrigued he went out to look for  himself, telling us:

"It is indeed a strange vessel but to the trained eye definitely a narrowboat. It has no windows, no licence, no registration number and no name."

Perhaps the latest method of licence evasion—disappearing when a British Waterways official comes into view! For surely the conning tower is too tall to fit under most bridges.
