    Thats interesting Minty, thats exactly where a lot of the planes fly over on the way to Tenerife, I shall look out for it! About 40 years ago I stopped whilst driving through France to look at a Hydro power plant (smallish dam) I remember I was impressed.

    That's something I don't think we have enough of, pick a river and just build loads one after the other, sorted...

    Albania was once powered 100% by hydro then climate change came along, oops,,, rivers dried up, think it's either the frogs or Adolfo that supply them now,,, tidal power, it's the future,,, be it estuary or sub sea, it's the future...

    I have a theory, don't tell anyone as I ain't patented it yet, you get a boat, stick paddle wheels on the side and propeller at the blunt end, give it a push to get it started, the paddles turn due to the water pushing them round, then they are connected to the prop which in turn pushes the boat forwarded to make the paddle wheels turn to drive the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to turn the paddles that turm the prop that pushes the boat forward to ,,, you got the idea....
