Managed a group trip to Staffa (amazing) via Iona ( ice cream stop) through Easdale, a family trip to Tobermory ( great fish and chips), a coffee and buns trip to Tayvallich (amazing place), well worth a visit via loch Sween.

Great memories

And my dream boat

End to end, both have blue tubes, ones drier and warmer than the other.

Very envious but proud to have the baby sister

Quite right well done , sat looking on a still evening into the gulf of corryveckan, did some fishing and enjoyed the evening skies.

Redbay in its glory

Great run back from Iona to Easdale, following sea, a "trimmed in" surf all the way back.

Well, the Boss's 11m is called Corryvreckan. It's a location that has a special place in my box of memories. Many years ago I found myself passing through it having taken my 6.5m over from Donegal on a two day cruise of the Isles. It was at that point that I realised I was very severely hooked on RIB cruising. I must have been through it six times this year. Your boat looks a lot like mine did then...

Have posted a video, we managed to keep finding excuses to go through, including some wet runs through and a very wet run through grey dogs.

Try again, now on Youtube

Doing it via youtube now, trimmed in riding the surf, looks a lot calmer than it actually was, great fun though.

Boat great as normal

Blast back from Ardfern

Run back from Ardfern, following some good food at the crafty kitchen, there's
a theme running here!

Youtube vids seem to be set as private.

Looks like a crackin' trip; hoping to get back up to the Auld Country ourselves next year with the new boat.
