The kind people of Bute are making sure the Loch has a better depth of water for the first weekend ... it is called rain!
Can't wait to get amongst the kind people of Bute again. Been going there since I was 16 years old. Al little guy called Johnny Leask and his mum rented boats from the harbour and he was happy to just let me and my pal take one even when he wasn't around and square up with him later on an honesty basis.

I didn’t mean for it to be stuck outside, they get fitted all over the place but inside was my thinking.
Although mounting to the radio mast would be a grand spot.

The boat is going to Bute with a small modern aerial in place of the replicated original type; there's nothing there you could mount to. Space and mounting positions inside are both severely limited, too.

Hi all
Has the beauty arrived in Bute yet.
I and my father are traveling to the Isle of Bute on the 15 aug :) earliest I could get as a silly thing called work was in my way :twisted:
I hope that we will have a chance of seeing this magnificent craft in all her glory apon the water.
All involved in this amazing project have done a great job, thank you keeping British history alive.

when there's down time, well see about letting people come and see - can't say any more than that for now.
