Aw shoot, Chirs, you found me out
I debated using south island New Zealand photos but I figured it's safe enough now to show the real thing since fuel is $15.67 CDN a litre once you get north of the border. That plus all the bear, cougar, raven and orca attacks should suffice to discourage people from thinking they might like to boat up here.
Here's a few more just for grins.* The first shot is how you line a dinghy up a too-shallow inlet against the current.* By manipulating the bow and midships lines you can use the current to position the dinghy anywhere you want in the channel as you pull it upstream or let it downstream.* This doesn't work with an inflatable---you need a boat with a keel or hard chines to do this.
