Royal Forth Yacht Club
Watersports at Granton

The club is a hotbed of innovation, constantly striving to improve service to our members…

This is Peter Hall’s patented dredger, Mark 3. It has a chain dangling in the mud, which is driven by the fan to agitate the silt.

Peter has high hopes for it. If it works, perhaps he can liaise with Ian Lindsay to produce a bigger version (utilising blades from Ian’s wind farms).
