Living on a boat must be interesting.

I'm too scared to drown.
Spoiler:
Boat is hewanhek; from hewa, to float and nhek, a man-made structure or habitation.

"To die from X" uses the instrumental case.

"To be able to do something" is the capability suffix -ret on the verb to be, which is the jack-of-all-trades of verbs.
