Now there's an idea.

The photo itself might have to do 'till we locate a Picasso tho'

Must say a big thanks to Tony for the ride back to Gunwarf. Saved us on a taxi!

And I mustn't forget to mention missus's secret whiskey stash in her bag; mini bottle complete with fold up shot glasses

Uisce Beatha

Oh Lord


That's my man overboard kit for wintry spills

I found the second 'vessel' BTW

Oh and it's Glenfiddich. A Crimbo pressie.

(There are those who swear by Bushmills!)

Not a problem Tim.. Wouldn't have seen the dolphin otherwise.. It's a shame Kathleen didn't have some coffee to go with the Glenfiddich..

Rude??!! Let me tell you what rude is.
Having got back from the jaunt on Saturday, I prepared to wash the boat down. I carefully took my mobile out of its aqua pac and put it on my belt just in case anyone should want to speak to me - there are some! I then made with the hose. To cut a long story short, where should I spot my mobile.........yes, in the aft drain well, which by this time was full of water. Boy was I rude Bloody belt clips.
Mind you, I think that mentioning Glenfiddich in polite company is pretty close to the knuckle too. Highland Park, Laphroig, Macallan, even Glenlivet, but Glenfiddich............
Come to think of it, the 'grey and wisen' might have something to do with all this; it was only a couple of nips the night before, honest

The question is, was it roomy, or did you just not fill the available space

It's a fairly impressive bit of boat, for those interested in saily things!
