Could people make Tue 11? Earlier in the week is likely to be quieter than later.

Re: Darren Taylor Yacht Repairs

He's also the new owner of Avilion. I know, I was on board her three weeks ago. All the whisky had been removed! What's the new boat going to be, Dave? Yes, I carefully tidied away all my stuff (including the whisky). It took 6 car trips, and I'm still cleaning smoke damage off things. Down to only...

Re: Any news from the west?

To add to the above: Lochboisdale has a new harbour on the south side of the loch with pontoons, electricity and water on pontoons. Shower block with free showers and laundry facilities*. All included in berthing charge. Only drawback is the 1 mile walk to the pub. * In July the free facilities were...

Re: DSC alerts today.

Motoring past Ardmore today I got regular DSC alerts for something 30 odd miles away bearing 017 degrees. Stornoway were discussing a boat on a rock, no immediate peril but another yacht stood by until Oban Lifeboat got there. After the fourth alert I got the chart out to see where the lat and long...

Re: Flu

I had a flu jag for the first time this winter, since I'm now officially an auld blimey. I was also given a pneumonia jag, which is apparently a one off. No flu so far (fingers firmly crossed).

"Blimey" wasn't my choice of word.

Re: Beeb Forecast

The good ship Marisca has circumnavigated Scotland albeit via the Clyde/Carron ditch, the Crinan and the Caledonian. I was expecting a wee mention in the New Year's honours but not a peep. Yon Chichester got a knighthood for not much more! The F&C is currently closed to through navigation since...

Re: South and west of Islay?

I've been round the outside of Islay once, clockwise from Lagavulin (after distillery & warehouse tours - recommended). The swell started to become significant approaching The Oa, and remained so round the west coast, refracting round the point of Nave Island where I anchored, giving a quite unc...

Of the dates suggested above suiting Silkie & Ken, I could make 25/11, 8/12, and 9/12. (I'm assuming Edinburgh, rather than Oban.)

Re: Drinks

Clocks have gone back - time to start Brexit style negotiations over the when and where of the annual Ed'burg festive get-together? My "red lines" are not in w/c 18/12; all EU citizens have full round buying rights; and the North Channel 'tween Noriron and Scotland should be maintained. I...
