.... and great memories. I don't like to count the years ago now, but I used to help out with that very job too ... certainly the land-based part, gathering the sheep, and loading them onto the boat. It was in the Sheik's time (not the forum member). I am sure that I have ancient pictures too, of those expeditions - must look them out.

The boat looks well set up for the job, too - good and secure. I recall that we had a couple of 'sheep overboard'; deftly rescued, mind!
