Re: Residential moorage.

The majority of residential moorings are on the Lowland Canals (Glasgow-Falkirk-Edinburgh) there are some on the Caley in Inverness but none on the shorter Crinan Canal though we have had liveaboards staying here. Most, I think, have waiting lists but as suggested you should contact Scottish Canals....

Re: 1st Fall-out from Brexit?

Did he fumble? he immediately celebrated the try,or was he trying it on, surely not? If the SRU had treated THe senior Russel fairly perhaps his son would have more respect for it. It must be difficult working for an organization that victimised your father while at the same time copping an enormous...

Re: 1st Fall-out from Brexit?

Perhaps you guys could have cut him a bit of slack, he played against Saracens in the afternoon, got beat, which feels twice as bad when it is them, and the result meant that instead of a home semi they have to go away to Clermont, probably one of the hardest places to win. Got himself up to Scotlan...

Re: 1st Fall-out from Brexit?

Being Irish, I am not as upset as the rest of you about Hoggy dropping it, but I thought it was a dire game. It might have been different if Finn had been there? However I really enjoyed the first half this afternoon though it was a real disappointment that les frogs could not deny our friends their...

Re: Profurl has disembowelled itself

Probably far too late to be of help but I have a 38 page 'Profurl, manuel de montage' which covers the R25 model. It has detailed diagrams and photos of how all the parts go together but Profurl part nos. rather than bearing sizes, loads of dimensions though. It is mostly in French but the illustrat...

Re: Apropos of not very much

Bitdefender has issued strong warnings that I should keep out of this discussion but what the heck. I am a child of 1940 entering my 9th. decade next week, so qualified to deal with Claymores depression. Back in my late forties when my prostate started playing up, after sticking his finger up my bum...

Re: inverary moorings

Amused by Scottish Canal's mooring outside the sea lock at Ardrishaig, put in after they removed the waiting pontoon. Spherical plastic buoy with a big 'V'on it, no eye, no strop, only way to use it is to lassoo the riser. Been there since spring but no one has managed to use it yet.

Re: Lochalsh pontoons

Came past early Friday morning and there seemed to be one in (or almost) in place so should be sorted and usable by now. Their lack has certainly put pressure on the visitors moorings in Plockton, compounded by the arrogant gentleman with the glass bottom boat making himself harbourmaster at Kyleakin.

Re: Fender board

If you do decide to go for scaffold board (I wouldn't) Glasgow Wood Recycling (forget the name of the street but between Dunbarton Rd. and the river) usually have stacks of it, its life on staging is limited and then it has to be used for something else, (in our case, raised beds in the veg. garden)

Re: Fender board

A suitable length of tanalized sw decking, (Hardwood is also availabe) needs no painting or further treatment, the ribbed surface tends to disguise the inevitable scuffs. It just needs to be long enough to span two piles but best to make it as long as your stowage arrangement permits.
