I believe that Hunters still use 'ways' for slipping their boats. My daughter's boat 'Spray' still has her snore holes in her keel. I sometimes feel tempted to reinstate ways on my slip way.

Other things to notice are the rather fine hire dinghy, by Wrights of Ipswich, who were famous builders in those days. 






My old Sea Scout group had a pair of Wright built sailing dinghies 16', clinker built as sturdy as a brick backhouse. They were often taken from Waldringfield out around the Cork lightship and back and were certainly still going strong in the early 70s. B*ggers to row though!
