The boat is back!  Iain has been away for a week with Alec in the Outer Isles.  They returned to Crinan Basin after a good week's sailing having locked in early this morning. As we keep the boat in Bowling Basin we are allowed to have her berthing in the canal as the two canals are all part of British Waterways.

I collected them this morning after a lovely drive along Loch Lomond and Loch Fyne.

A couple of shots here of Seol na Mara otherwise known to us familiarly as 'The Banana'.

 Here is the winding gear, still there after many years.  I have memories of this piece of equipment: Alastair, aged about 10 years old, got his finger caught in between the small and large gear (right side).  His right centre fingernail still grows with a dent in it!
