Subject: RE: Help: I need some tune names!!
Since ancient times, a small ferry operated between Tuckton and Christchurch in Dorset. This ferry was the main transport over the River Stour until the late 1800s when a bridge was erected. I have an old photo of a bewhiskered, ragged fellow standing upright in a rowboat and holding a punting oar. On the stern is emblazoned the grand name Maid of the Stour. So my suggestions would be "Wick Ferry" or "Maid of the Stour" as a kind of commemoration.
