This dinghy is called Iris and was owned by James Scott

Sorry Bob, I should have known that.
I now recall we rowed it together with your Dad and mine. It was too much like hard work for me. I'm sure Jim was having a laugh as well as saving the petrol in the outboard,

Is that the dinghy from the Howe Bobby? I remember Uncle Jim taking me out in it. I have a photo of him in it, with a small outboard, I think a one and a half Seagull.

Yes it is the same dinghy, it's long gone but I still have the outboard, it's a one and a half.
