Another Scottish SIB owner

Hi, just thought I'd introduce myself as I have just ordered my first SIB. It's a waveline 320 with a Suzuki DF8. I'm hoping I'll get lots of use out it but before that all starts, be prepared for some stupid questions

Stu

Going to try it out for the first time on Saturday. Doing a beach launch but not too sure of the process. Any guidance would be helpful

keep in mind you need to register to use loch lomond, you can't just launch.

if you nip into the duncan memorial slipway in balloch the rangers will get you fixed up before you go out.

you need to put numbers on your boat or display them on a white board on both sides. they will sell you everything for about 20 quid if memory serves and is removable, don't put stickers on the actual boat.

cheers
