    Lokks like fun if a lot of hard work with prop rubbish and low water levets! Was there a ‘weighting system’ in place for the final scoring David? The butty being towed versus little Rivets boat are miles apart IMO. I’m not surprised ‘Rivets’ won being much smaller it could go where others would find it difficult. What’s its draught?
    Anyway another enjoyable vlog.

    • Yes there’s quite a complex weighting system regarding boat size and whether you’re towing or not plus crewing numbers etc!
