      It is here beside the shed

      but I can explore further afield because I can put the engine on my micro-motorsailor

      yet to work out how to put an engine on the duck punt

        Interesting thought about an engine. Maybe a small electric motor mounted on the side just aft of the helm seating position. Obviously it would need to be able to tip up easily given the very shallow channels, etc., that a DP sails in. True a battery may be a heavy and bulky item, but should fit around the mast area. What do you think Dylan?

          it might work – a lot of buggering about though

            I tend to agree. The beauty of the DP concept is its simplicity, and from what one can see from various DP websites they sail very well, though of course not so with next to nothing wind.

    Looks like a lovely area you have moved to D. Which of the films covers that area? So have you actually bought a house there, or are you renting or something? Where are you keeping Katie L now then?

      we have bought a house

      as my mother used to say – I will leave here feet first – so this is our last one

      there are two films about the Deben
