Wrong­footed by Oc­to­pus

Practical Boat Owner - - Letters -

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
