Been trying lately to think of a topic to post about & hopefully get people chatting. I have just answered a question on another forum regarding the little rowing boat that ferries people from Messonghi Beach Hotel side of the river over to the village. It's going on for 30 years since I was first in Messonghi, think it was one drachma per person then to go across! Anyone remember so far back, and the elderly chap who used to row across? He had the most deep, gravelly voice I have ever heard. Used to keep all his coins under a piece of carpet in the bottom of the boat as I remember!

What a shame Jackie. I thought such an interesting topic would receive some replies.

Hi. I think the old man is still alive & lives in Messonghi we see him every time we visit & some one told us he was the old boatman & he has a gravelly voice so I’m sure it’s him. Hope we can keep these posts going I really miss reading them.
