Once again we’ve picked the brains of the Ullapool people and copied their ideas for a trolley, which is 90% there, just needing some paint, some scrap carpet glued to the supporting pads and the axles drilled to take big washers and pins to stop the wheels falling off.

It’s been an amazing week here in Ullapool. I’ve rowed for Seil today. in the over 60s mixed – we came 6th in a field of 11 boats, putting us up to 25th on the leaderboard.
I’ve also rowed for Stornoway (old friends) and for the glamourous Portsoy Skiffettes in their pink boat, coxed Selkie, ceilidhed ashore and afloat and met some amazing people, all in sunshine amongst amazing scenery.
More later plus pix when I manage to get the laptop connected. Right now it’ s time for the medal presentations and the final ceilidh.
