Para Handy


"Noo drinkin', chust wan gless of beer...."

Several people asked: "What's the name of that boat?!" It's Para Handy and the name in previous post is a forward-looking-photosoup.
Para Handy is the nickname of character Peter Macfarlane, Scottish skipper of the “Clyde Puffer” Vital Spark. Neil Munro created him as the main character in his short stories "The Vital Spark". His life is one of pride in his ship, light-heartedly overcoming life's setbacks, love for his crew and stout beer.

Our Canadian adventure was on Para Handy. And our Scottish link completes the reasons to rename "Easy".

More about Para Handy here and on Wikipedia. Short stories here or as BBC TV series here.
