Launched about 1900, zoomed about a bit, all seemed OK. On mooring looked at water separator/filter. Looked like red diesel . Had Soltron in fuel last year, and this is last years fuel. Checked for water etc., while ashore, but must have stirred it all up getting to mooring. I'll have to try to get rid of whatever it is, but engine ran well - probably until the filter clogs. Bit of a whittle this. Still - should still get there but it looks as if I'll be going round in circles for a while in the loch here until I can clear the fuel. £££ . Not the best place to break down, the Gulf.

I also launched in Oban around 1900 and had a quick zip round the harbour testing.
Everything seems to work OK but I suspect I need a new battery. I had drained my fuel system last year and it has cost me putting 82lts of fuel in the boat to refill it!
We will most likely launch from Cuan and have a barbie somewhere on a beach at lunchtime before joining up, possibly near Craobh if anyone else is around....

Yeah! I used all my spare cans full in the car, but couldn't be bothered to syphon it out of the boat. Should have done really. I'd have saved money too, cos the stuff in the boat was 99.9p per litre and now it's only 93.9 in Tescos.

If I can sort the fuel, I'll be away somewhere for lunch too.

Those photos

Gavin,

Many thanks for posting the photos. Whilst managing the boat it is very easy to forget to record the event. Super job!

Many thanks to all who attended in particular the smaller bats who did well to travel to such an isolated place. not all are included in the photos but hats off to Justin, Carrick and and Ben.

Full story and more photos when I get a chance.

Hi Guys

Yes great weekend - really regreting turning up at the Gulf too early, it looks like Sauchiehall street on a Saturday night in the photo's!

In the photo's, where's the jetty BW Raven is tied up to, with the shoreline building in the background?

Well hope its not to long till the next one - and that we'll see more of a local contingent for longer on that occassion.

Carrick

No sooner said than done - my first upload, here goes!

Shame about the quality - cameraphone.

This was before she had the pillion seat added.

Need to meet up with fellow ribbers for action shot.

Cheers - Carrick

We missed taking a photo of the sea eagle it went over us as we were
doing lazy circles in corryvreckan drinking red wine on the afterdeck.

we did get a cracking photo of a golden eagle on Jura,will post it asap

P.S we've all seen whats under your kilt when you did that table-top
jig in the Lord-of-the-Isles pub
