Pete Devrell travelled to Dartmouth recently and sailed aboard KC for a trip along the River Dart to Totnes. Pete shot video footage of the trip that can be seen by clicking http://youtu.be/m-0oqoD4na0

Some stills from the video appear below.

Pete visited Switzerland a few weeks ago and shot video of several paddle steamers, footage can be seen on his devsteam YouTube Channel.

Thanks Pete.

All aboard for a cruise to Totnes.

A beautiful day for a trip on the river.
