    Good, David.

    When thinking about it, that trolley, with its big wheels, could easily be turned into a multi-purpose trolley, carrying groceries, petrol cans and wotnot. It could soon become any cruising yachtsman’s best friend.

    In today's post, I received a kayak trolley that I'd bought through eBay, the cheapest I could find.  It's very light, and also compact with the easily-removed wheels. I should be able to stow it aboard in case I need to take the kayak up a wide beach.

    It's occurred to me that it will also be very useful for moving the sail bundle, with battens and yard already installed, from my house, down Ravenglass main street and across the beach to Weaverbird, as she lies dried out in the harbour, a distance of at least 1/4 mile.
