Photo: Paris an atalanta’s view. Going through Paris is exciting in an extreme sport sense. The tourist boats are nose to tail. They have enormous engines and combined with the swift current they kick up quite a chop. The rudders were going like a fish tail.
Photo: new cleat. As both rear cleats had been broken I needed new ones otherwise I would not be able to secure the back of the boat. As luck would have it the strut made for me was oversized. So I ripped a strip off that and made one I still have the other to make.
