Wrongfooted by Octopus
PBO is a brilliant magazine… always a treat to receive.
And it was a delight to read the October 2017 issue where, in a letter, Geoff Humphrey says he was ‘pleased to see Octopus again’.
But the picture of the lovely ketch next to the article isn’t Octopus as Geoff will know – here’s a picture of the old girl that should have been featured instead.
Geoff will be pleased to hear that we had a wonderful cruise in her up the West Coast of Scotland to Fort William, Mull, Skye to Lewis then Cape Wrath to explore Orkney before heading back south to Inverness.
Plastic Boats? Bah... 10 tons of mahogany, oak and brass is by far the best! Oliver Chapple By email
