Missing the boat today means missing an opportunity. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the "coaches" were means of river transport whose departures and stops depended on precise timetables.

The water coche was the most used means of transport. However, borrowing this type of boat remained an adventure. Thus, “to miss the boat” means that one misses a good opportunity to live a particular event and which could have been exciting or fruitful.
