Managed a group trip to Staffa (amazing) via Iona ( ice cream stop) through Easdale, a family trip to Tobermory ( great fish and chips), a coffee and buns trip to Tayvallich (amazing place), well worth a visit via loch Sween.

Great memories

And my dream boat

End to end, both have blue tubes, ones drier and warmer than the other.

Very envious but proud to have the baby sister

Quite right well done , sat looking on a still evening into the gulf of corryveckan, did some fishing and enjoyed the evening skies.

Missing the peace and tranquility

Redbay in its glory

Great run back from Iona to Easdale, following sea, a "trimmed in" surf all the way back.

Well, the Boss's 11m is called Corryvreckan. It's a location that has a special place in my box of memories. Many years ago I found myself passing through it having taken my 6.5m over from Donegal on a two day cruise of the Isles. It was at that point that I realised I was very severely hooked on RIB cruising. I must have been through it six times this year. Your boat looks a lot like mine did then...
