I think he's just running up the miles on it to try and get the price down!

Great photos - i missed a great outing by the looks of things.
Ohhhh "the beast" a short run but a long experience.
"The Boss" told me yesterday the wind got up a bit livelier that predicted.

Well done Willk - cadging a lift on the Beast!!!

Much more interesting that my wee Humber! Come to think of it going across the Sound in the Humber on Saturday could have been much more interesting than in the Beast!!

Raced once, Low Hours.

Looks great, I spent Friday night on rathlin, great meal in the manor house. Had a bumpy run across to ballycastle Saturday afternoon!
Pity I missed this though, hopefully my rib will be on the water from sunday and I'll make the next one.

That's interesting. We got FLASH traffic in Cushendall on Saturday to say they had run out of Guinness so we diverted to Bruce's Kitchen. You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?

Willk, your info was quite correct I fear!
Arrived in manor house was told no lager on draught, and only two pints of guiness left on tap ...... Was 6 of us...... As such we where offered tiger beer bottles or this German bottled blonde beer (not good). After some tiger, then this german brew we moved onto corona.... ( we did feel we where being used to sup up the end of season dating bottles-unsuitable for the locals of course) After the excellent meal it was off to mc Cuaigs.... They had everything we needed (unfortunately) and they do not have a closing time it would appear

I believe it. We were gonna bring a couple of kegs to relieve the drought, but there were three weddings in Cushendall and we had to return there ourselves. So there was Rationing

I got my ration and at least one other lad's too
