    Remember Robert telling us about getting questioned after it by some DTI wallah who asked him if he had collected the boat's papers before leaving her.Bob said to him "there was a bloo*y big steel stem wedged in the galley,she was cut right through to the funnel,I was just oot my bed trying to get up the stairs wi' the water following me and lapping at my fuc*ing ars*..the last thing I was thinking about was ****ing boat's papers" !!! I still laugh when I think back on that one,I was definately PMSL that day O0
    i remember her being run down ronnie they were lucky to all get off.
    Was this one ever in Stornoway ?

    If memory serves (although I'm no 100% sure!) she was still SY registered when she came to Oban Dennis,and aye Terry it was a close call...by all accounts a skin of the teeth job O0
