Na, just prepared to wait for a good forecast. Which is why I would never want to do the Banff-Stavanger race or anything else that requires a strictly timed departure.

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. Peterhead is a depressing port of arrival after what feels like a moderately epic voyage, but kit is h...

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.

Avy-J

So, what have we been doing down the boatyard these past 22 months? Well, Avy-J (boat no. 2) is just about ready to sail and play with. Here's most of what we have been doing to turn an tired old classic into a potential ocean greyhound ready for a long trip: BOW TO STERN New custom made double bow ...

Oh good grief if I put one more thing in a safe place. . .

Re: TREM steaming light connections

"Standard" terminals (blue insulation) are the middle size of the commonly used ones. Larger (yellow) and smaller (red) are also available, but less common. I would suggest having a look at the RS website. It's the width, innit? Yellowness, blueness and redness are to do with wire thickne...

TREM steaming light connections

. It says 'fasten the power supply cables to the lamp-holder with the proper female connectors'. The only place to fasten them is to the lampholders top and bottom, which have a tab on them. This tab is too small to fit a standard spade terminal on however. Does anyone know what I am looking for an...
