Yet another cracking video to watch on a wild and stormy morning....(instead of re-laying big old bloody 3x2 slabs) A great distraction and excuse for a seat and a coffee in front of the big TV.

Thanks for a great trip mate and you hospitality which made the travel much easier. The rain was very heavy all night when I got to the boat it took 20 minutes with both drains open to empty, I laid for hours listening to the rain beating down on the tent sipping wine that night magic. Itís a pity we didnít get to do the west coast 250 together due to the weather, a must for another day.
Hope to get up again when the wife gets better.
Cheers Jeff

Yup..Jeff is big Steve ..I will never forget the first time I saw him standing up in his SIB for a pish over the side. Myself and Kaman’s jaws dropped overboard when we saw a thing that would put a stallion to shame. Later when we ribbed Jeff about it ..he assured us he was peeing through a plastic tube to get it well overboard. Im not so sure though.

Im definitely the wee guy out the three. Kamans’ Excel Volaire 420 is even bigger ..or at least it looks it to me. You will see it in action in the next box set .. Going round the Small Isles from Taynuilt.

Although I am smaller..I can handle the rough just as well and often better ? ...in the rough at displacement speed the Volaire does not steer well in a wind. A wave crashed over Kaman’s massive toob and swept an oar overboard.. no way could he get it back as the boat was blown all over the place trying...eventually the oar gave up waiting to be saved and sank.



Wow Brinormeg ..3x2 slabs ..I remember doing similar when I was in my twenties ..moved 30 of the buggers..never again ..its much easier watching videos

Good to see you still around Jambo and we all agree..Loch Sween is a perfect paradise .

The pipe was to protect it from gellifish stings whilst I tested how deep it was
