Poly..thanks for the work you did in arranging it all..it is well appreciated
I'll echo that sentiment - even if you DO make me sound like Timmy the Dog!
I like a spot of camping - sibbing too, so it seemed like a good plan. This is the time of year that donegaldan and I usually make a midsummer cruise and so as not to break with tradition (and p1ss him off a bit) I decided not to trouble P&O with this one. This meant that by the time I met Poly I had a 125Nm solo passage under my belt and had lost my appetite for helming - which I think suited Poly just fine. At least I was spared the sight of JK and him squabbling over the wheel again
When I RVed with Poly I was very impressed with the upgrades - a double jockey - comfort was assured! Once the rig was loaded with my crap it was pretty cozy but she managed very well in the various conditions. The Gurnard has told the Tale well on his other thread, so I'll not repeat it - but it was a mighty day's craic. The Gurnard is an interesting individual, Still Waters and all that! He was determined to land on the Garvellachs but I knew it wasn't to be from the moment he told me his Limelight story....
...anyway, a few pics from the trip:
