I think I'll work on a small fishing fleet first (with no military use at all, of course!) before trying one of the large 3-4 man currachs. Our Roman neighbours might start to notice and impose a boating tax or fishing quota ... do legionaries count as "discards"?
@mikeland: Coracles ... steering ... I've tried - once - it wasn't a good outcome, but very funny for anyone watching! I've a few Warlord plastic Celts I'm going to use (I've used one as a charioteer - the chap on the slide in the piccies) as some of the postures are ideal, being bent nearly double. I do find some of them a bit odd when assembled as warriors, but they'll be great for this.
