One of my students just told me about a type of ferry that is quite common on the Rhine river in Basel. It's called a 'reaction ferry' and after puzzling over what it could be I looked it up on Youtube. I found that there are several in Canada too.

If, like me, you've never heard of them, try to guess how they work before looking for the answer online.

I looked it up and found it very interesting. Certainly environmentally friendly too but you do apparently need a strong water flow. Maybe a couple of towers, one at Lymington and one at Yarmouth perhaps....
