The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Mull

Hi again Guys ...

The first part of a Mull Adventure that I had been planning for several months. It was to be a four day trip.. but as with all small boat adventures .. Especially ones planned for dates well in advance .. the weather dictates and can make even the best plans meaningless.



You will have to return to find out what happened .. but if you enjoyed the first part..Im sure you will enjoy the rest of the story.

I have still to edit the movie clips so there will be a delay before posting the next episode.

Best regards
The Gurnard

Great video Donny as always... very much looking forward to the latter events in the next part though!

Jeff S your outfit is so well balanced for all the work you've done with the forward console etc... moves through the water really nicely.

Hi again Guys ..I had a bit of a delay getting part two ready as Windows 10 decided to take several hours for an important update. Its playing havoc with my mouse as it now has a mind of its own.

Anyhoo.. Part Two is now here



I will post Part three once I set a mouse trap to capture the dirty wee rodent running around my computer screen.

For those not familiar with the Island of Mull ..here is a quick map showing out route on the first Video.



Thanks for commenting and glad you enjoy it 69cmw, Jeff, and Gazzago ..its appreciated

Fenlander ..thanks fir your kind words too.. and I can confirm Jeff has a lovely setup and it went beautifully. Im almost tempted to try a ply front for mine. .but I need the console in front of me to keep the camera equipment dry and easy accessible .. so think I will stick with my tarp canopy up front for a while yet.

HH and Jeff ..thanks to you both for your company.. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The videos will let you see how I saw things shape up.. and will bring back good memories at a later time.
