Hi puffin how far south of Oban? Lovely pic looks like sound at the entry to Loch melfort, a bit of a 'race' in the water. As I am taking my boat out this w/end I wont see you on the water this year but hope to bump into you someday.
Cheers Billy

Can you let me know where you got it?
The mast and outboard bracket are specials that I either altered or CAD drew and had made.

Photo taken from Sound of Luing as we headed down to south end of Luing from Fladda before heading back up sound of Shuna.

Based up near Seil

Have already got the outboard bracket from Gaelforce. Would you mind sharing the design for the mast? I would presume the transom for a 5.8 and 6.0m Destroyer are identical.

As in previous post, based near Seil.

We probably know some of the same folk if not each other, lots of folk from work live near Seil.
Puffin is just a bit of an unfortunate name for anyone Oban based, the business is not exactly the most popular of folk in the area with anyone!

Ah....... Name was outwith my control, was overruled by the kids. Afraid its all down to "Hiccup Horendous Haddock The Third" the viking hero of a series of childrens books by Cressida Cowell. His boat was called The Hopeful Puffin! At least I managed to get it shortened to Puffin!

Send me an email address to send the drawing and I'll do so. If you can't open CAD drawings (DWG format) let me know and I can convert it to something a little less exotic you can read.
I know a couple more folk with RIBs in the area but they are pretty inactive but it would be nice to have a group of folk for runs, it always better with some company
