Notes on Chapter 14 of The Voyage of The Aegre are now available on the book website. Chapter 14 tells of our passage across the Caribbean and through the Panama Canal. Rough, wet and windy, the passage led to some expensive breakages, and the requirement of an engine to go through the Canal added another complication. The Notes contain a little more information about these issues plus ten additional photos to those in the book. See Notes on Chapter 14 of The Voyage of The Aegre

Meanwhile in June this year Glasgow Boatbuilder Peter Matheson has been adding the frames and engine bearers to the 21 ft yohl inspired by The Aegre that he is building. Yes, the new boat will have an engine, anticipating a life fishing in the tempestuous waters of the Pentland Firth between the northern coast of Scotland and the Orkney Islands. See the latest build pictures.
