The Bristol Pilot Cutter and the skip

The Beeb's series of Sea Fever programs is about to end, with the last two of the "boats that built Britain".

The penultimate of these was the totally wonderful Bristol Pilot Cutter (above) while the last was the LCVP landing craft.

To show the evolution of the concept the presenter Tom Cunliffe experimented with a rather unusual vessel, namely a skip with outboard.

And it worked!
