Re: Drinks

OK,

I intend to be in the Doric tonight (Tue 10/12/19). If my train's on time I should be there a few minutes before 2000. Hopefully see people there - if no-one turns up I'll just read my Private Eye in a corner.

Re: Drinks

Could I suggest Tue 10? I discovered earlier today that FFI (Falkirk for Independence) are meeting on the 9th and there is an interesting guest speaker that I'd like to hear.

Sorry, a clash of dates, so I won't make it.

Feel free to propose another date - there's only 2 of us so far.


Mon 9, Tue 10, Wed 11, Mon 16, Tue 17, Wed 18 all OK for me.

Re: Apologies to several new posters

. Just been going through the notifications and have found several new non-spam posts from new posters that have had no approval, going as far back as August. Looks like this forum could do with a new moderator. It's not a very arduous job, is anyone up for it? I would be happy to do it, provided y...

Re: Women's Rooster Aquafleece Pro

Hey folks! I'm trying to find a Women's Rooster Aquafleece Pro size 12. Let me know if you've seen one in a shop or are selling one. Feel free to drop me a list of sailing shops that sell sailing clothing in Scotland since I've been struggling to find some good ones. Thanks! https://i.ibb.co/wzYFS4...

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.

Re: Stern chainplate rebuild - thoughts?

Looks like a reasonable approach. Two thoughts occur. It would probably be best to first make a template out of cardboard to get the internal angles and dimensions right. To avoid letting water or condensation into the laminate I would be tempted to drill the holes through the hull and deck a little...

Re: LED Flares

I've an extensive range of 32" waist breeks that I dream of getting back into, but I've been stuck on 34" for the last 10 years. A few days in bed with the flu last week (despite a free flu jag) have helped, but I'm no quite there yet.

Re: Cleit cardinal and Claymore's Rock

. It will probably just mean more numpties braving Cuan and hitting the rock off the N. end of Shuna. I have (non-sailing) friends who have expressed shock when I tell them there are unmarked rocks lurking in navigable waters, that are a potential threat to passing boats, but for me there are thing...

Re: Sad coincidence?

Sad to hear that. O tempori o mortes and all that. Your sentiments are laudable but your Latin is suspect. Cicero's often-quoted words "O tempora, o mores." mean "O the times! O the customs!", or more idiomatically "What times! What customs!" and have nothing to do wit...
