A bit of a run

Just a few pics of my recent hop across the North Channel to Portavadie on Loch Fyne.

As previous wake shot - a glorious run up Kilbrannan Sound

Didn't see land for another 19.8 miles - visibility very poor - radar for the last 8 miles - broadband radar rocks

If you are interested in owning a very unique expeditionary RIB - watch this space

Yes Mick - it has only entered service but the operators "Kintyre Express" are very impressed with the whole package and she certainly looks the business

Ah, Ribochet, I saw Ricochet on the pontoon with the tent up. I knew I recognised the boat, but didn't put 2+2 together that you were a distant traveller, and assumed that was her home berth.
