  • Description

    Dorset. "Who says yachting is expensive? A Weymouth enthusiast made this craft out of aeroplane fabric, bits of wood and string - total cost 25/-!" L/S of a couple pushing a small boat on wheels along the quayside.

    "Faith, hope - and a couple of broomsticks for masts" M/S of the couple. He stands up to his knees in the water and she sits in the boat. He climbs in and sits in the back of the boat. "Twenty-five shillingsworth of fun!" M/S of them sailing around the harbour. The wife rows. I think that the boat is called "Bonzo" - just visible on the prow of the boat.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 655.
