    Jacko, Considering the speed at which you are building boats, I'm beginning to think that you are doing it faster than the Yanks built Liberty ships during WW2.

    A DUWK by any other name. It may have wings but will only fly on water. Good job

    They used a DUKW as a bus for transport to the island off St Pierre de Eglise on the Contentin peninsula (Normandy) - not sure if they still do - went a few times as they were building replicas of old French boats on the island.

    Surprisingly, the original American DUKW was designed by the renowned yacht designers Sparkman and Stevens. I spent a few 'happy' days in the aftermath of the 1953 East Coast Floods in one of these doing rescue work and delivering supplies on the flooded fields of the Isle of Sheppey in Kent.

    Cheers, Nerys
