Great to see them under sail, so they had sails as well as a motor?
No Jim, the one of the link is one of the more common original "Westlander" boats, they didn't have engines, and were pulled or poled along the narrow ditches in the area where they used to work (named the Westland), mainly with produce from the farm-lands, if they went further away where they had to cross bigger lakes, or rivers they could sail.
Many of these old boats were motorised later, the one you photographed at Stanley Ferry was built as a motorbarge (different stern) and these didn't have sails.

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
