Re: Bosuns Table Cafe at Largs

That's not so good - it was really handy (and cheap) for takeaway coffees and bacon rolls in the morning!

Yes, I hope that they do a good job with Regattas / Scotts as it was pretty handy when the weather wasn't playing ball or I'd arrived the night before for an early departure.

Bosuns Table Cafe at Largs

Was down in Largs yesterday rigging the sails and giving the engine some new oil and filters. I popped up to get some lunch and there was a sign outside the marina office saying that the Bosuns Table is 'closed until further notice' was quite surprised as it was open two weeks ago when I had the boa...

Re: O U C H !!!

Another :thumbsup: for ZincSmart from me - great service and seems to be a good quality product. I had the bonus that I just found a couple of sets in the garage that I ordered a couple of years ago - so they are going on before launch tomorrow :D

Re: Bad news from Sanda

Looking on TOP there may be hope. It looks like it is open, but they are still trying to sort the license out so it's BYO at the moment, has anybody stopped by there recently - C_W perhaps?

Cheers,

Re: Helicopter Rescue Today

Sounds like all was well in the end and good work for helping out! And I agree completely about the great work that the Coastguard and the RNLI do.

Helicopter Rescue Today

Caught some VHF traffic this afternoon (I think around 1630) between Clyde CG and Rescue 177 (the SAR helicopter from Prestwick) - I didn't catch what the nature of the rescue was but it mentioned that 'Yacht Shard' was shortly to be on scene to give a report?? Anybody know what was going on?

Rough Today

Just back from Rothesay - it was blowing a bit out in Skelmorlie channel. Not where I wanted to be in my 20' Colvic with a hangover getting rolled around :shock:

Good night though, the place was heaving with the Highland Games on yesterday.

Re: Port Bannanyyne visit

Thanks for that. As I was planning on a couple of days visit I decided to go for Rothesay instead so that I could get some leccy and water - where I am posting from right now in fact!

Cheers,

Re: Port Bannanyyne visit

Hi,

How is Port Bannatyne coming along? Are there many pontoons installed, do they have power and water on them yet?

Cheers,

Intro

Hi, Been lurking on here a while, so thought I should step up and introduce myself! Recently moved my wee 20' Colvic Watson Motorsailer 'Aspen' through from the east, by way of the F&C Canal and have been enjoying exploring the Clyde. Planning to get some proper crusing in leaving next Wednesday...
