	Black protestants are protestants who take their religion
	seriously.  "Black" in this context means intense or
	dedicated.  Answering this question, Gerard wrote: "not
	simply protestant, but	a dedicated protestant, not just
	talking the talk but also walking the walk".

	There is some speculation as to where this expression comes
	from.  One plausible source is the Irish word dubh (pr. dove,
	meaning black) which is commonly used as an intensifier.
	It might also have something to do with the Royal Black
	Institution, a body for Ulster protestants similar to
	the Orange order.

I'm looking for information regarding navigable waterways for a 44' fly bridge cruiser for corporate entertainment such as the big horse racing events. I've searched the internet and book stores here in Walws without success.
