Letona : For Sale in Oban 
David McGilp picked up Letona in 2008 when she was advertised as being “Free to a good home”. She was in need of 30 metres of new hull planking which David paid to have fixed, before tackling most of the other issues himself. She's since changed owners and looks set to do so again although now as a well maintained and looked after vessel.
