Thanks to Paul for an amazing day out and showing us round Loch Etive
Its the one day up here that looked even possible for boating and even then when we launched the forecast 5kn wind was more like 10kn and looking pretty lively out in the Lynn of Lorn.
Really great having some local knowledge to say "lets go to Loch Etive instead"
- even that got a bit lumpy at times and then we had a play in the Falls of Lora
And coming back into Tralee the wind had built up a fair old sea rolling into the beach so the last mile got quite technical (for me at least) with a ~2ft-3ft swell coming in on the port stern quarter so that was a great bit of experience to have
Few pics attached, amazed Paul has got the video edited this quickly - looks great
Lots of interesting info gleaned about the Frib and 15HP but will post that on my Frib330 thread together with some observations on how the Frib rides compared with the Honwave.
Overall, 37.1Nm, 4.06hrs elapsed, 3.13hrs moving, avg moving speed 11Kn, top speed 19Kn, fuel used ~ 16l
And Sea Dog Charlie loved it
