Cockleshell Bay
Grangepans Boat Yaird
1979

Futin Det takes the first few paddles in his ultimately unsuccessful attempt ti be the first teenager ti cross the River Forth on a raft made entirely of empty lager cans fi the back i the BU Club.

Noo, many years later, Det's pioneering work has led ti plans ti introduce a Hovercraft Service oan the Forth.

See this is whaur Fawkirt Cooncil dinny hae any imagination. We could yase the doaks fur this service - Bo'ness ti Embra or Rosyth fur Fife commuters. N customers wid pop inty the toon fur newspapers, baccy and seaseek pills thus stimulatin the local economy.
