Not only this but Inland the wind is not regularily strong enough to power craft with sails and boats so equipped have proven quite unrealiable.
To overcome this Problem the Good folk of Bodstonia have built themselves several Horse powered flat bed paddle boats.
As the rivers upon which These paddle boats are employed are quite shallow, steering is done by the means of Punting poles, which again, requires Little effort from the punters, the boats being flat bedded in design.
Here we can see one of the Bodstonian paddle-boats, the "Bettie´s Grace" as it ferries a Pair of hunters back from thier day out..it was successfull, they have a brace of rabbits with them.
Also onboard are Jedediah and Jonathan Johanssen. Maybe they are going into Bodston town to buy some small bits and pieces.
"Bettie´s Grace" is owned and run by the Edgewell Brothers, Bobby and Billy.
"Bettie´s Grace" is one of the larger Paddle Boats and is capable of carrying a full Company of the Bodston Fusiliers and all thier baggage mules.
