Re: Interesting plans from Calmac

A very interesting idea but, as has been pointed out, the roads on many of the islands are not suitable for two-way traffic in any volume and there is no mention of the cost of the necessary upgrading. The one that sprang to my mind is on Jura, where unless if has been drastically improved since I w...

Re: Gael Force own brand anti fouling paint

In reply to Geoff's idea about a 100mm boot topping, we found that round the corner (in Cardwell Bay) the rolling induced by the ferries caused the topsides to be sullied by growth of weed and deposition of oily sh1te to a level well above the static waterline. Over the years we raised the level of ...

Re: Well my Buckos

Sea Hawk came out of the water on 11 July, following the engine-oil-in-the-bilge foul-up. The new engine is finally in place but not yet fully installed. I don't think we will bother relaunching till the spring.

Re: Crinan Canal Closed

Disappointing news. Still nothing on the Scottish Canals web site earlier today to let us know when it may be open again but some information is there now.

Random thoughts

about time, navigation and stuff. But first, it was nice to put a face to Geoff of this Parrish when he appeared on reporting Scotland this evening talking about the effect of the Scottish budget. I haven't a clue what he was saying as the sound was off but I saw his name on the tape thingy they put...

Re: Mistral is sold

Stripper? Commode? What are youse all on? Actually we like to get out west in May or June in the long light nights and before the midgies and tourists arrive but the scottish excrement weather this year has persuaded us that we will cruise around the Clyde at this time. If we can get a forecast that...

Re: internet guru please.

I asked my soon about this a while ago as he is an I G and I was getting spam on Hotmail that was apparently coming from my Hotmail address. I had tried to block it but naturally got a failure message telling me that I could not block my own address. His advice was to just ignore it and it would go ...

More rugby

Something puzzled me about a refereeing decision (or lack of one) in the Italy Wales match. A kick into the Welsh 22 in the second half was cleared by a Welsh defender back into the area where a scrum had broken up, where it was handled by another Welsh player. The ball was then knocked forward by a...

Re: Rugby

I believe that a couple of weeks ago, Finn Russell was criticized for going for a positional kick to allow a try-scoring chance. It was intercepted by the opposition and nearly allowed them to score. Greg Laidlaw shrewdly took his time over the kick at goal so that there would be no chance of the Ir...

Re: Moody 346 "Kylora"

I liked one of the 346 Moodys that we saw last year on our hunt for a replacement for Wight Dawn. They look a lot sleeker than the Seahawk that we eventually bought. It all came down to internal space and asking price in the end.
