That was the name, Pentland Wave, that I was trying to think of but couldnt remember. She used to call in by Longhope frequently. From memory she was all white in them days

Looking for aluminum boats for sale? What a great way to spend your summer! Take a friend and hit the water in hopes of catching "the big one!" Boating has become the favored pastime for many people around the world. However, many of the new boats are very expensive and some people are just not willing to shell out that much money.
