Lucky catch or great skill ???

A couple who were out on our yacht True Blue last week sent us this great photo when they returned home. Was it a lucky right place – right time photo or incredible skill ??? 😉

You choose – either way its a lovely photo.

Oban Transit Marina

The new transit Marina in Oban Bay is now open for business – a great place to stop off for a spot of shopping or a meal ashore. It also makesd an ideal place to stop the night before returning here as its just a short hop away. Full details here.

An unusual request ???

We completed one of our more unusual requests today! There is a prototype tidal power electricity generating platform being tested in the Falls of Lora and we were asked to make guard wires and safety lines for it to prevent visitors falling in the drink. The quote was submitted on Weds, order placed for all the swaged fittings on Thursday – parts arrived Friday (Big Thank You to the boys at Sta-Lok rigging!) – Tim and I made all the parts on Friday from our detailed measurements and on Saturday we fitted all the wires. We were VERY pleased that every wire was the right length – first time ! It looks great and we were very pleased to be able to help out the company behind the project – the whole setup will eventually be dismantled after testing and shipped out to South East Asia where it will be permanently installed. More information about this interesting project is here.
