Hemel Pike loves his life on the canals and wouldn't have it any other way. Not only is he not tied down, but he has the luxury of a string of attractive women up and down the nation's waterways to call upon - it's a lifestyle that suits him just fine.
On one particularly troublesome journey from base in Brentford up to Birmingham however, the inevitable happens: one of his squeezes has fallen pregnant. With every other person he's met on the trip - including another regular girlfriend - enquiring about his future and settling on dry land, could this be a sign of the end of the waterways for the canal Casanova?
