Top quality post and cracking pics to boot.
Not been to loch etive for a few years now - those pics make me want to go back, so will do soon hopefully.
Last time I went in my Sib I took a city boy work colleague also.
He was having the best day ever right up until the last 10 mins when he caught a 7 lb Spurdog.
When trying to unhook and return it one of the spurs punctured the skin on the back of his thumb.
Within 15 mins his hand resembled a red boxing glove!!!
He has never asked me to go back lol!

hi naiad..i got mine from force 4 ..there don't seem to be too many suppliers now..yet in the 60's - 70's roller boats were very popular for moving the heavy sailing boats like GP14's and Enterprise's etc.

I remember them well ..cos I followed my father's Hornet as he rolled it up the beach on them. My job was to collect the one that rolled out the transom ..then place it under the bow again ..until we reached the sailing club compound.

They work a treat for a large flat bottomed SIB

thanks again to all for reading and commenting
