Final preparations for Ullapool

No laughing matter – man overboard!

The boat is amazingly stable but lifting an “unconscious” person back in takes a huge effort.

Thanks to Alan Collett for braving the icy waters of the Cut.

A sobering exercise. The moral is – stay in the boat.

The new oars have been delivered and will be unveiled at Ullapool. Looking good, but the proof of the pudding….meanwhile Andy/Adrian’s pared down originals are proving better and better.

Next stop – Scotland.
