    Dylan,
    Looks like (at 2:27-ish) that the DP has a fully squared off transom. Is that an ‘alternate’ genre? Never saw one like that in any of your videos/pics. Is there a story we missed? And the story of the plexi port in the port side? Cheers, TomH

    well spotted – the square stern was as a result of following the wrong pencil line with the jig saw on one of the panels – so it was either re-cut it or modify the design as tad so it is now a unique punt. The window is for filming wildlife under the water – it works pretty well. I did think of putting one in the bottom but it would get really badly scratched and the angle works really well

    Another great video Dylan. Bit of a boat graveyard but just my sort of backwater. Andy

    Certainly a Boat Graveyard, a couple of the wooden Hulls look like Keels and the large steel one could be a Humber Sloop, some were steel… its also a hidden ”breeding ground” for Drascombes…

    Thanks for the great filming, so much history tied up to the side of the river. If only some of those old boats could talk, what a tale they could tell.
