I reckon Paul Mullings is out to make us winter-bound Northern Europeans envious with these shots taken in high summer down in New Zealand – which he sent in an email in which he signs off  ‘Keep warm – Paul’.

The shots of a pedal powered catamaran and an interesting home-built cruising dinghy were taken on the shores of Lake Rotoiti in the Nelson Lakes National Park at the top of the South Island and show a couple of boats that caught his interest recently. The cat looks fun, but can anyone identify the dinghy and perhaps explain how that tiller works?

We’ve had some of the most bitterly cold weather I’ve seen lately, and the only way to keep consistently warm round here is to never leave the stove. I’m tempted to do just that each morning, though other people I know are busily leaving the country…
