Mat managed about 3 years with the motorhome before he was found in the garage getting the old Mariner 4hp outboard up and running and inflating the tender we had with Windfall. Shortly after that, it was all being bundled into the car and we were on the lake having a run up and down.
Mat started to look at ribs that could be towed behind the motorhome and campsites 'that were near water'. This Brig rib was still being run in and had only spent a couple of hours on Loch Lomond. We managed to borrow a car with a toebar (as the motorhome didn't have one....yet) and we made our way up to Scotland to take a look at this rib. A couple of hours later we were having a run round on the lake and towing our new purcahse home.
We returned with the motorhome and the Rib and spent a week exploring Lock Lomand and the islands. We made a couple more trips and then headed south where the first video of Boating with the Baileys was taken aboard the rib. We made a trip over to the Isle of Wight where we noticed Allegra was up for sale and the rest is documented in our videos....
