From time to time I think about getting a motor boat, a handy little craft for getting out and back quickly, something on a trailer that can be dropped into the water easily.
It doesn't have to be a now ubiquitous inflatable RIB, as this elegant little boat shows. Flaring topsides which should keep the spray down and a hull form which will work at slow speeds as well as fast.
A simple but elegant fit out, including those lovely decks and plenty of room for the picnic basket and wine cooler, fishing tackle, buckets and spades.....
