Tell you what, Big Man Jr., I pity the man that gets your spare kidney - it must still be in trauma

I have to admit willk, i had a bit of the beer blues today. Detoxification is almost complete so that kidney will soon be a fine piece of real estate. Any octogenarian would be proud to abuse it.

Trevor G - that's quality stuff from Staffa. I'm saving that particular location for later, when I'm back in the saddle, so to speak.

Honestman - I'll put a good word in with the Boss regarding yer kidney. The 1050 is for sale, low hours etc. and when he gets back from thon spree in the Isles, he may look favourably on a kidney on PX, or a liver...

We went on Saturday. Easdale - Tobermory - Calgary Bay - Staffa - Iona - Oban and back to Easdale.
The conditions were excellent - with the worst bit being the run back from Oban to Easdale after fuelling at Puffin Divers!

There are a few random boats in this. Portnahaven steals a large portion of it though

Oh yes - and if any of you saw me being towed in at the end of the weekend I did have a proper excuse - the drive shaft on the SeaRiders's DT75 snapped on the way back from Corryvecken
I count it as being lucky rather than unlucky as it could have happened 10 mins earlier in the whirlpools , or the day before 60 miles from Easdale. Fortunately it was just a few miles from the slip

That'll be grt Andy all welcome you will enjoy the whole wend. There were guys up from Reading this year and other parts of your Green & pleasant land. August will
Good in many ways but especially to meet up on the water and to have sometime to chat have a nice meal and a few beers. All we need is the weather. Oh and course the specially trained midges for Tony!!
