Dix (i) says rowing boats continued to operate services from London to Richmond for many years after the introduction of steam. He says that he boats were called passage boats and were heavy 'randans' rowed by three men rather than the cutter claimed here. Traditional Thames cutters would fit the description of a randan to an inexpert eye.
