Sadly I'm out the running as I had a tantrum due to weather and work stopping me getting the SIB out! In a moment of madness I put the boat up for sale and now it's sold!!!

If anyone is looking for a deckhand I'm more than happy to pay towards fuel and supply a dram or two.

Cheers.

If I can persuade the missus to look after the kids then I'm there. When are you leaving on the Saturday and when are you likely to be back on the Sunday?

Fraser, unbelievable!

Stilll looking good for me too. I will finalise my plans nearer the time though as im in explore the north west of scotland mood at the moment. Im coming down the coast from Loch Laxford ..and had a great few days. Today was perfect..mirror calm seas all day..and i went round even oneof the Summer isles. Im just using the wee f rib and 6 hp outboard..it sips fuel. So unless i get stranded somewhere i will nip home and collect the Quicksilver and 25 hp...it will use more in a coupleof days than the yamaha 6 hp uses in a month.

Im in the chip shop at ullapool at the mo.. im starving..hardly a mackerel to beseen up here

Looking forward to it..and hoping for good weather

Just catching up on things. Afraid I can neither confirm or deny whether I will be able to make this jolly due to a number of complicated factors. Will shout up next week once the muddied waters clear a bit.

I'm not going to make it. Parenting duties too onerous I'm afraid. Have a great time and I'll cross my fingers for good weather. Nick

Hi there H.H.
I'm very hopeful that I'll be joining you's. Got the nod from the Missus but there's a few other factors that may impede my attendance. At present I'm about 75 % coming. I'll confirm on Thursday.
Cheers
