Day 5 – 24 April 2009

The plans arrived today.  We’re off!!  The plans came in a package postmarked Portree, Isle of Skye.  The boat’s designer, Iain Oughtred, lives in Bearnisdale, Isle of Skye.  I can picture the post office in Portree – OIFIS A’ PHUIST – which we visited on a family holiday in 2005.  The picture at the top of this page is also of the water to the east of Portree.scotland-2005-007



  1. hello!! your boat is beautiful! i was just wandering, where did you get the plans? I’m planning to build my own, and your blog is a big inspiration and a source of knowledge!
