When Life was Serious —

It wasn’t always about riding around on motorbikes and walking the dog —

In the mid-eighties I was working my arse off and in a moment of madness I put in a ‘Blind Offer’ for this lot you see on the barge above.

To my surprise and consternation my bid was accepted – so what do you do when you are a one man band and all of a sudden you become the owner of the concrete batching plant that was built for the sole purpose of manufacturing the biggest concrete drilling rig in the world?

As it happened I could have sold it ten times over – all I had to do was move it piece meal from the bare shores of Wester Ross to a more accessible part of the country and it sold itself.

Way to go –
