Coastal Connection, Oban, Scotland

Just thought i'd share a little gem with you guys.

I'm in Oban, Scotland for the week and we bumped into the guy's who run Coastal Connections RIB Tours. A nicer family you could not meet and they're very knowledgeable as they're from the area. They have 2 x Redbay 11m Stormforces that are amazingly tidy machines.

We're on a lads weekend with our own craft, but when I come back in the summer with the better half, i'm going to book a day out. Just thought i'd share with you guys incase there's anyone who visit's the area but doesn't bother to tow their boat all the way.

No connection obviously apart from meeting, chatting and having a look at their craft today. They briefly discussed their prices and I reckon I wouldn't have 2 hours in the pub for the price, so, imho good value (but then again i'm from Ireland where you nearly have to re-mortgage your house to do the weekly shopping)
