    Well done Dylan……. seems you are reaching out. Even to the godbotherers.

    Even priests are human and have hobbies! Also I’m not the proselytising kind. Perhaps my religion is more one of nature than churches, with some of the experiences I have been through. The gunkholing is an excellent addition to my dinghy cruising on the sea – for which I have two different boats. I live in France and am discovering the rivers and some of the inland paradises not seen by the crowds of tourists. Thanks for the link, Dylan.

    My inland waterway boat “Sophia” now has her new rig and I will be doing tests this week on a lake.

    I took my little plastic “bathtub” with its new rig out on the Seine (fresh water) yesterday – Sophia doesn’t steer well with an oar, but OK with the rudder half down if the water is really shallow. I have a sort of “mini centreboard” to prevent being blown sideways when rowing against the wind, which works quite well.

    I have devised a boom tent for the time I will spend more than a day exploring a river. With a boat of this kind, I would pull the boat up onto the bank and sleep on hard standing. The tent was my first one of my sea boat (Zef), but changed it when I needed to give myself more headroom. It will be too cold to sleep on board before next spring, but I’ll be doing some daysailing on rivers and lakes.

    I draw your attention to and its mention of my discovering Tony Smith and his creek sailing blog I wonder if you, Dylan, and he know each other.
