Skiff Maintenance

SKIFF MAINTENANCE – HELP REQUIRED

This begins on Monday morning (2nd) and there is a lot to do. This is a general call for any member who is free and available to turn up at the marina at 9.00am on Monday to help get everything ready to go up to Irvine (skiff, tools, consumables, other bits and pieces, etc). The timetable is quite short at the Museum boatshed, so the sooner we get everything up there the better.No experience required.

Once home to a chapel dedicated to Saint Mary in the sixteenth century though sadly no remains exist today. populated today numerous birds, seals and apparently rabbits, the island also has a fresh water spring or well ,remarkable given its location some three miles from shore.
