Moray - spring 2008 tbc

I have my rib in findhorn, does anyone want to meet up for cruises in the near future? Keen to explore round the coast and I am new to the area.

Not local but...

I envy you the rugged scenery but not the temperature!
I've seen dolphins off Spey Bay and Cullen from the shore. Anywhere along this bit of coast should be great. Would pop in at Gardens town (local Hero fame) tiny cottages beneath the cliffs, Portsoy (new little Marina) Cullen (of the Cullen Skink fame). Banff and Macduff either side of the Deveron 'estuary' are busy fishing ports but worth a look.

Moray Firth has the largest non migratory population of bottlenose dolphins in the UK. They are also the biggest Bottlenoses in the world due to the cold water and abundant food.

Iain,

Just sold my rib, I used to run sightseeing tours from Whitehills.
If I manage to buy another boat before summer will be glad to go out. There are lots of litle bays and harbours to the east as described above but also the option of going north. Wick would be a good cruise stay over night and then home the next day.
I am moving house to stay in Forres so even closer.
It would be great to organise a rib gathering weekend?

Alan

Just remembered I have an other RIB Bit smaller Flatacraft 4 with a 40hp Mercury so I will be able to come out to play. Didn't use it last year due to running bigger rib.
Let us know when you are going out, you may have to slow down for me

Alan
