Boaty contractors in the Oban area

Postby cpedw » Sat Dec 22, 2018 6:17 pm

This list https://www.dropbox.com/s/18uudtcaworeqj5/Creran%20list%20of%20Contractors.jpg?dl=0 is posted in the office at Creran Marine of people who do work of various sorts on boats. No particular recommendation, though Robert de Sadeler has looked after Dogdays' engine for the last 2 years. He's done it well.

PS Why can't I link the picture directly into the posst? I tried the Img button but it didn't seem to work.

IMG button only works if you post an image URL, i.e. an image that is already online.

I don't want people uploading large quantities of random images to the server.

If you have a few minutes that is a useful list, why not type it out and copy and paste it here?

Yes. A constant reminder that boating is like standing under a cold shower tearing up fivers and the best times are when you buy it and when you sell it!
