Re: Any news from the west?

I support local boats using these new facilities. I have a vague memory somewhere of seeing a locals price list (unsure where, but this year. Possibly Lochmaddy?) where I figured that a local could keep a boat there for a year from about the price of a visitor berth for a few days. But there should...

Re: 40' Yacht on Skerryvore Rocks

Yacht was stolen from charter company in Norway apparently. Skipper had only done one week sailing course before chartering for a coastal trip off Norweigan coast, stopped on Orkney for fuel, told them he was going to Faroe!

Re: PPR Course

Did it a year or so ago, on a quiet Saturday and Sunday in Barra. A good internet connection is essential, lots of windows open simultaneously can get confusing, so I relied on reopening the required source documents as the need arised. If you do all the 'practice' papers some of the questions will ...

Re: Bulk Purchasing and Buying Power

Alastair. No problem to drop in another chain to add to the collection. When they're all here I'll post a list of what we've got to be sure nothing gone astray. There's still one or two en-route from Elgin...... There may be a flaw in that plan......I had a phone call from the Elgin plant yesterday...

Emergency nav lights? In June? St Kilda? Have the organisers ever been that far up north!? :)

Driving in snow

I have just driven from Inverness to Aberdeen (via Elgin :wink: ) there is about an inch of snow on the road at one of the long crawler lane uphill sections- cars all over the place, drivers slowing to a crawl at the bottom of the hill, hazard lights on.... Have these people never heard of momentum?...

Re: Bulk Purchasing and Buying Power

I hope to be passing through Elgin en route to Aberdoon on Sunday next, probably early evening, ferries permitting.... Any suggestions where I might leave a pile ( maybe 40m) of 5/16 chain? Failing that, returning from Aberdeen on Thursday morning, could drop it off then if its not too late? Leaving...

Re: Bulk Purchasing and Buying Power

A drop off in Elgin would suit me perfectly, as by chance I will be driving past there at the end of the month! Collection from Cumbernauld ( whenever) will be easier, plenty hauliers running Glasgow to Stornoway.
