Interesting autobiographical essays of life and sport in the Humber salt marshes and associated personalities such as Stanley and Norman Duncan. Includes an interesting and valuable chapter describing in detail the construction of a gun punt, with photographs of various stages of construction. This account of building a gun-punt in the traditional manner is quite possibly unique: the bottom (which isn't flat) is carved from a pair of matching single boards and the sides set up in the manner of a normal punt - but with interesting variations for the specialised shape of the bow and stern. Credland's account in this book provides indispensible information to anyone considering building a genuinely traditional gun punt, and one which will manoeuvre easily, carry its way and prove reasonably seaworthy.
