    Yep, just seen it on the lunchtime "Look East." Very sad. There was a death on a houseboat in Burnham when I lived there a few years ago, carbon monoxide poisoning. All you liveaboards, please take care!

    Tragic.

    We are left worrying if it was the lovely lady living aboard a big petrol MOBO in the yard.

    We were ashore next to her for a month.

    No, it was the lady on a wooden boat afloat near the chandlery, very sad indeed. Our thoughts are with her husband, Graham. RIP
    I'll be off then
