Here are three of the contributors to Programme Two of the Canoe Boys, which you can hear from Friday 23rd Nov on Radio Scotland or online, following the links alongside.
The first is Duncan McGilp, who we found largely by accident. Mr McGilp met and paddled with the original Canoe Boys in 1934 and has a great tale to tell.
Nick Turnbull, an oyster fisherman who has been on Mull 30 years, reckons some of those problems are as bad as ever. We spoke at his home and if you look carefully at that photo you can see Ardnamurchan Point in the distance.
He's also a paddler who, using a rowing boat, went around Mull in three days.
So these are the faces, now hear their voices in programme two of The Canoe Boys, Friday 11.30 Radio Scotland and Online.
