Public Apology to John Kennett.

Many apologies - use of the photograph was entirely my fault and I should (and do) know better. The image of Phoenix was only to be used temporarily as the actual SkyeWaves boat to be featured on the site should have been built, delivered and photographed a while ago before the site went live.

Unfortunately the boat in question has been delayed in manufacturing, has not yet been delivered and hence the site went live 'as was'. I had intended at that point to approach John to ask for permission to use the Phoenix image temporarily and I am seriously amiss in not having done so. The images of the boat were removed from the website by 10pm last night immediately in accordance with his (very reasonable) request.

They will be replaced by one from the manufacturer as soon as this can be arranged or photos of the actual RIB (whichever arrive first), as indeed they should have been before going live.

I would also like to personally assure John that there will be no long-term effects of the type reported by Keith in one of the contributons above.

John Biscoe - Webmaster to SkyeWaves.

Very Sorry, well now you're here keep on postin'.

The difference is that YOU did something about it, the people who pinched my site didn't....until, as fate decreed, the tables were turned on them.

So, welcome aboard, and please join in.

Keith (might try Skye in my tiddler) Hart

That's very kind of you David, I'm all embarassed now....


Right on a serious matter.
Seeing as we are on the subject of Skye, take a look at this :http://www.northern.police.uk/nav/index1.htm Then take a look at the link about the body found on Skye. If you are from Skye you may be able to help.

I have now had abject apologies, grovelling even, by email and here on the forum from SkyeWaves and their web designer. The offending picture was removed very promptly too. Thank you.

I fully accept the apologies and am sure that no harm was intended (and in fact no harm was done), and consider the matter closed. There's no need for this to get out of proportion!

I may tax the guilty parties a beer or two should I ever meet them though . . .

John
