About the Author

Jake Kavanagh was born into a boating family and for many years lived by the Thames at Marlow. After a variety of jobs the River eventually drew him back; Jake joined the Thames Water Authority as a lock-keeper, working the locks around Windsor for many years. Jake, well known as a boating cartoonist and freelance boating writer, is also the author of Ups and Downs of a Lockkeeper, also published by Adlard Coles Nautical.


'One thing you never get in a Kavanagh cartoon is a blank face. His variety of facial expressions, ranging from panic-stricken wives to grinning spectators, from horrified lockkeepers to determined skippers, are a treat.' * Nautical Magazine (January 2010) *
'...we can sit back and enjoy the misfortune of others.' * Canoeist (January 2010) *
'Kavanagh has again produced a 'laugh-a-page' collection of stories and sketches showing the unbelievable scraps pople can get into out on the water.' * Sailing Magazine (December 2010) *
