Yesterday was rounded off with a trip into ullapool to pick up a couple of spare parts from the post office. Due to the fact that it costs thousands to actaully pull up at the dock, we sent in our man overboard tender lowered from the side of the ship. Here are a couple of pictures from the end of the day.
