Hi Poly..thanks for sorting the Avatar names for me .. I do remember asking everyone while sitting round the campfire .. but then I had another tin of gravy ..and got muddled ..then another tin and a wee nip ..and then forgot completely
Stig thanks for the account of the airfoor on the Honwave .. Im sure it will help folks decide “Which SIB” is best for them.. and it is coming from first hand experience and not Chinese Whispers rumour. You are also correct..the smallest SIB of the weekend was an Ali Floor ..I checked a photo I have which clearly shows an aluminium runner
Hi Sunsport.. (got your avatar name right that time ) glad you enjoyed it.. I enjoyed the banter round the campfire as well as the soaking to get there ... hope we can all meet again next year. Thanks for clearing up the water over transom issue .. it should help clarify to any doubting folks that it is not an issue with a packing piece.
Hi Willk..Im sorry you didn’t manage this year..but perhaps we will meet again next year
As predicted..once we were out the shelter of the Kyles of Bute.. the sea was still choppy. I don’t take photos in the very rough water as my camera is a DSLR and not waterproof. Its also hopless trying to hold the camera steady.. not to mention dangerous driving.
Perhaps that alone is testament as to how stable the Quicksilver 4.3 meter boat is in a chop.. I have to keep on the plane to keep up with you guys.. both hands on the camera to operate it ..and watch for unexpected waves myself. I do have the kill cord attached to the OB in case of an accident.
Here are some quieter moments going round Ardlamont Point ..
and then we were in the shelter of Loch Fyne.. heading for our campsite..
We were looking forward to landing.. getting a fire going .. and clearing salty throats with a few waves of liquid gravy
to be continued ...
