Why is there a bat on our boat?
QWe bought a boat last year and found something on board, but we have no idea what it is! It’s like a baseball bat but its end is square. Can you advise please? Thanks! PAULCHES
ATONY REPLIES: Did this boat inhabit the Northern waterways? I think it may be the implement that is used to open the paddles on the Calder & Hebble Navigation. It’s called a hand spike.
