I never got to see the engine room . But yes remember it being quite quick , and not much wash ,due to the paddles I guess, It is quite a narrow beam by the looks of it .
It may not now , but I think it used to go all round the country as relief boat to the various ferries thatserve the islands . Iam sure it was on the Lundy run for quite a while .

Theres no wash cos she is flat bottomed... She is indeed a sight, I have run beside her many times, she is the second one from the original design I believe. Being paddle driven, she suffers from some strange helming problems, such as, too many punters on one side of the boat means she cant sail straight, as one paddle comes out of the water, think Ive got some recent photos, will post in a mo

Good video but you HAVE to be there in person - the smells and sounds are incredible and no need for ear muffs unlike diesel engine rooms.

Narrow beam? With those paddles? No chance!!!

More "Mega toys"

Talking of mega yachts; this "toy" nearly ran me over friday
Seems she had been having some work done at a local marine works; (as they have one of the largest boat lifts on the west coast.)

Really funny ,as I heard a very posh female English accent on the VHF requesting clearance to leave port.
Seems it runs around giving cheap tours (130,000 euros a week or so)

If that was the captains voice, then I think I'm in love
cheers Dal

According to the Skipper they've almost lost it twice.

Here's 'Kiring'
I think I spotted that the other week. Is it the one with a weird crow's nest and bell on the front deck?
