It is not just the convenience of being able to push against the current, or simply to extend your cruiisng range - it add another dinension to the use of your boat. Fishing, picnics and greater accessiblity to creeks and rivers where sailing may not be an option. Even the smallest of the Drascombe range, the Dabber will benefit.
