Recently I sold a Sea Otter Narrow boat to a customer (James Smith) who is a retired dentist. The boat was surveyed and there were a couple of minor issues to be resolved prior to completion. James had said he would be away for a few weeks so there was no rush to get the work done. I asked if he was going "anywhere nice" as one does, the reply I got was not what I would have ever imagined. James was going to Nicaragua for 2 weeks to perform basic dental care, pain relief and dental health education. In order to visit the villages the main form of transport (now here's the nautical link !!) is a small narrow boat called a "Panger" that has a 200 hp engine hung on the back!!.... Below is a brief and interesting report from James along with pictures of this work he regularly provides at his own cost................

Sometimes, I come to the conclusion you just get too many emails. Anyhow, whilst poring through Friday’s delivery of the odd two or three hundred emails in my inbox, I noticed one titled Rib Raid; nothing to do with technical redundancy on servers. When I opened it, I found it was an invitation to go and join the guys at Boatshed, Hamble for a brief soiree around the Solent.
