Best of luck to Tony and everyone else for this year's trip - it looks like the weather is going to be cracking and i hope all goes well. Rather gutted that i cant be there as we have to go to a mate's wedding - cant believe he wouldnt agree to change the date given the clash!
Have a good one and hopefully see you all next year
Cheers
Alasdair

Hi Tony

Kids fancy taking in a beach at some point on Saturday if the weather is good. Any suggestions? Had wondered about Calgary bay on Mull, are there any good ones on south side of Ardnamurchan?

How about Davie Balfours Bay on the Ross of Mull, fantastic enclosed white sandy beach usually with no one else on it. There's a couple of otters live in there as well.

I'll be joining you all on Saturday somewhere off the Lismore corner of Mull (life is getting in the way of a good time again.... )

For anyone that's interested, I have a pile of bits cluttering up my garage which I can bring along.

- A pair of unbraked 750Kg suspension / hub / bearing assemblies - done about 100 miles.
- A merc Trim gauge
- a clamp / swivel off a Yam 75 (minus the power trim).
- A suzi leg off a DT25/ 30
- A suzi CDI off a DT25/ 30 (1992 version)

If anyone wants them, have a search in the "bits'n'pieces section & let me know either here or by PM before fri eve & I'll throw them in. Make me a vaguely sensible offer - the midsection bits I'll swap for a pint of whatever they have on tap at Salen!

See you all saturday....

Just returned to Easdale. Everything is ready and the weather is as everyone has predicted should be in our favour. As the sun starts to set now the skies are reddening - superb again. Oyster Bar and Puffer all stocked up, pontoon is cleared, T shirts were collected today. Geoff W is all set to meet and greet Fri.

Beaches within Sunart/Sound of Mull are a bit hard to find but I recall one just west of Glenbeg on the south side of the Ardnamurchan peninsula. You should see it as you enter Loch Sunart. Obviously if you head Iona/Ross of Mull as the guys say there are beaches to die for.

Safe passage to Easdale

Thanks Tony, found it on google Earth, Camas Nan Geall or Ardslignish Bay, just west of Glenbeg and Glenborrodale. Looks like a good one, just need some sunshine!!

Flying Test Monkeys are "Go"

That's what we wanted to hear Tony!

We should hit town in the late afternoon, earlier if the Venison Burgers are off the menu in Craighouse.

I've just had a particularly good bit of news - Tom was just messin' with us about having to take a Fishwisher Fibfisher Fastfisher...

...no, he has designed an Exquisite Torment for donegaldan and myself. He's lending us a boat that we can't say no to, the fuel consumption of which would bring a tear to a statue's eye!

Tuts - the 16m isn't a RIB and couldn't go to a RIB Rendezvous
