Will second that. And now discovered the 390 sib wont fit in any room in the house.....30cm too big!

Should have went with the 360 like yours steve...at least it would fit in the lounge if I put the sofa outside and with the wife on shifts this weekend I could have got everything blown up and started to doing a few mods.

Thanks guys and Im glad you enjoyed the video ..I had a lot of fun getting the footage.

Hi A1an ..good to hear from you and hope you are well.

I went up the Sound of Mull on Sat 26th Jun, round Eigg on Sunday, and back down the Sound on Monday.. so a couple of days after the tragic news of the accident of the two fishermen that fell off the boat between Eigg and Rum, I heard the 60 year old sadly died. A sad reminder never to take the sea for granted.

Were you in the vicinity when I was going up ? ..That was a RIB going through the Lismore race on Saturday morning in the video and I think it came down Loch Linnhie on the west side of Lismore ?

After seeing the size and weight of the box it came in we could almost have a deal, but I think your Diane would have a fit

It will just have to live in the house until the outside unboxing next weekend with hopefully better weather, and I should have a helping hand after doing my wrist in this week at work, but itching to get it inflated for a proper look and start tinkering.

.....Im sure that kitchen/lounge wall would be better removed to make for a more open plan house...hmmmm

Excellent as ever Donny, very inspiring. Mrs PD says you should be voicing audio books for kids.

Hi Donnie. We were actually the weekend before that. Launched from Arisaig and did Eigg and Rum en route to Canna but the NW put paid to that. The wind was North when we left so tried to use Eigg and Rum as a bit of shelter for the run up to Canna but it turned NW and that was the end of that. Fun all the same.

Tragic news about the chap that lost his life, he was a hell of a nice bloke, somewhat of a legend around these parts. He spent his life on that stretch of water, such a shock for everyone. Youve probably come across him yourself.
