    That little hand turned outboard looks perfect for me, I was thinking about getting a small electric one for moving around the rocks. Do you know how much it is?

    I would think rowing would work better than a manual outboard!

    When I first saw one (think it must have been Southampton last year) I thought it might be handy for moving my inflatable tender around the harbour - oars are a pain as none of the gaps are wide enough and you can't 'scull' an inflatable with a single oar over the stern like I used to with a hard tender.

    I use a Drainman pump on my boat as it`s open to the elements and on a pontoon mooring all year around. It certainly works well and takes a lot of pressure off the conventional bilge pumps I also have fitted.
