I certainly donít envy you on that exposed crossing on Saturday Willk
although I always enjoy a visit to a distillery

Saturday was a funny day for me too.. it started off flat calm at Oban.. then the winds and seas picked up around lunch time.. it got a little rough in the middle of the Firth of Lorne F4 - F5 and I was in a convoy of SIBs



No distillery visit at the end..but I managed a can or two of the black chop ..to get rid of the sea sickness feeling and steady my hands again .

This Mac drives in Forward gear, which isn't very Mayo School In any case, I wasn't surprised - I just said he stuck it rightly. My driving is somewhat erratic and conditions were so-so. He did his leg in recently so I was delighted that he prevailed with his usual fortitude and good humour.

Going Backwards method is used as a form of thrill seeking in Mayo when on RIBS. Matt H wave jumps I go backward in rough seas

There's some serious "DOSH" in those pictures willk obviously the Ardbeg jaunt isn't for the mere PLEBS of RIBnet society although I think that I did spot one cabinless rib which was probably used for the butler to serve the large drams to the Elite class so to speak

I must admit I do love cabin ribs though :thumbup:

That'll be laptops, fancy plotters and any other gizmos which may let on as to where the SW Beamer pirates have been raping the seabed. All go glug when the FP boys rock up.
