Can I be slightly jealous? (of the ribbing, not Pikey's initiation ceremony! )

All I manged last week was a wee spin to the next bay with my Aux on a borrowed dinghy! #1 crew loved it - especially when "Lady Iona" provided us with some Atlantic swell* sized wake to play / surf in!

- When did you drive up? - I may have passed you going the other way just north of Crianlarich..... Not that you would have noticed me as a ribber - the aux was buried in the box trailer.


* Not really - but in a 3m soft floor with a whopping 4 Hosses on the back it looks HUUUUGE!

sounds like you've had a great time, and probably better weather than we've had in Nth Wales!

Nope, definitely not you then! This rib was about 5m and was behind a car - and was a week later!

Great you had a good holiday.
