'Better drowned than duffers...'
I managed to sneak that in as the epigraph to the third chapter of my doctoral thesis

Bet if the book had been written in 69, not 29, that is what they'd have been in. Something Rotomoulded if written in 2009?

I hope you are also planning a trip to Peel Island (Wildcat Island) on Coniston too.

I've sailed on Windermere in my youth (actually learned to sail there). No idea what boat they'd be sailing in a modern version but hopefully not a piece of plastic sh*te. I somehow doubt anyone would call their daughter Titty these days either LOL
