Great pics Paul, thanks for posting them.

Nice one of the Kintyre Express, I skipper it fairly regularly as well, a really fabulous boat in the rough!

The Kintyre Express at Sanda Island last week. I took the Lochgilphead Environmental Health Inspector to check out the Byron Darnton, the second most remote pub in the UK. Glad to report it got a clean bill of health, especially as I had lunch there!

Yeah, I was out last night when they put the Mayday Relay out - a 1450 tonne log carrier, according to Clyde Coastguard. Needless to say I did not offer to go and tow her off, I don't think a measly 400hp would have been up to the job (but don't tell Josh I missed a salvage opportunity!).
