|The launching of Sonic Too!|
|Just finishing off the beer|
It's a lovely little We-no-nah Argosy. I had managed to have a try of a friends Argosy and loved it!
The launch was to be a gentle paddle on the Union Canal, plan to go in at Polmont, through the tunnel and out at the top of the Falkirk wheel.

5 of us met bright and early on the very chilly Saturday morning, made our way to the canal, just to find it frozen solid! We decided to try the canal at Linlithgow where the barges had possibly kept it from freezing over - no, it was just as solid. Plan no. 3, we'd try Linlithgow loch! I've never paddled this wee loch before. We headed down to the waters edge. Thankfully the water was mostly unfrozen. As this was an official launch, I had brought a bottle of Hebridean Gold, not to smash, waste of good beer and makes a nasty mess, but just a wee swally! I had decided my new wee boat will be called "Sonic Too" after my much missed dog.
