I bet his "fuel consumption" hasn't slackened any...


Very enjoyable video BTW - final approach was awesome.

It was a nice wee day out for Callum & Anne lunch on Rothesay then meeting up with the boys west Kyle, then a pitstop for Tea/cakes or Champaign out the fridge north Kyle.

Parker 750 C/W 300hp Verado has to be one of the best boats we have ever had running at 30kn 50ltrs hour. But at 42kn its drinking 100ltrs hour. Finish of mouldings & layout are totaly fantastic!

Yet another great meet up with the Clyde bandits!!!

it was a shocking state of affairs Callum, we went pretty much 5 hours without opening the cake box up!!. There are standards that have to be kept and you bringing champagne with your good lady moved them up a notch

As i type this the snow has just started....typical Scotland 24 hours later.

P.S Callum, you are more than welcome to tag along anytime, just remember the heater for your cabin for us to gather round

We made it to Campbeltown this time! Visibility wasn't great down there so Rathlin island will need to wait.
