The something for the Weekend Team get even busier than usual during the summer – It not that there is nothing to podcast about far from it – but it’s its difficult to get the whole gang together even from their remote locations to record the weekly show.

However we don’t stand idle and have managed to record a few podcasts in advance.

This week –

A new project is being launched by Oban Men’s Shed to restore a little piece of maritime history.
Kathie has been chatting to the project’s John McAllister and Colin Turtle to find out how they plan, with the help of willing hands and council funding, to restore clinker boat the Mary Jane and get her back on the water.
Built about 90 years ago on Easdale, and registered as a small craft in World War Two, this special lady is badly in need of some tender loving care – to become seaworthy once again.
