Re: Stavanger to Oban - any advice

. I've sailed an Albin Vega from Stavanger to Peterhead and from Haugesand to Peterhead. Both involved two nights at sea but neither crossing was particularly traumatic - or particularly pleasant.

There is a small highly mobile pocket of hyperspace that follows me around and produces exactly this effect. I put somethign down, look away for a second and it is gone. Hours later, it reappears, usually when I have either given up, bought a replacement on Ebay or gone to the pub.
