Marionette - a short narrowboat

On the Oxford/GU approaching Braunston we passed Marionette, one of the shortest narrowboats we've seen.

It looks like a Sea Otter with that rubber rubbing strake which is a feature of the aluminium dodgems boats. I didn't know Sea Otters made them this small.

We did see another small boat, but, unfortunately, I haven't a photo. That one seemed to be entirely engine room, with a short bow in front and a similarly diminutive stern behind.
