    How did reconcile his former hatred of boats with engines & then having one himself? Be interested in how he justified it to himself.

    I don’t recall any conversation about not liking motors .The Vectis Isle was very slow and we hand steered much of the time and the anchour was manual as well although it did have a Lister motor at times.On one occasion we ended up going backwards at the height of a gale in the channel......in many ways it felt like an old sailing coaster!
