Re: Drinks

I had 12th in my diary. Is it now changed? 10th? I'll be in Aberdeen all day, probably can't make that day.

Re: Another Dilemma

I've pondered that dilemma too, even if you are a few years ahead of me in the actuarial calculations! £1100 to buy new and lasts say 11 years. Service at 3 years first 6 years then annual after? That's perhaps 7 or 8 services in 11 years. £1100 + £310 x 8 = £3580. Over 11 years =£325/yr Could join ...

Re: Anti-fouling - bulk purchase again anyone?

The AF paint has arrived.
I'll email those that I have emails for to ask where and when you'd like to collect.
Remember possibilities include G672JH, EH48 3.. and IV30 6FG and maybe more possibilities (my boat is in Silvers yard Rosneath, so I go there sometimes).

Re: Twazzock frosting

I've only noticed Twazzocks frosting up when it's any of the following:
Dreich, oorlich, Baltic, Jeelit, Findrikin or Snell.

By the time its Unbrak, then the twazzocks come richt agin, back to being pure ordinary edjits.

About to place the order for this paint.
It's going to be £28 per can for cruising grade (choice of colours) and ££53 for performance (hard racing type)
If you want to back out, now's the time to do it.
If you want to join in, hurry up and let me know (preferably email as first post)

Re: Anti-fouling - bulk purchase again anyone?

The chances are now good. Took a while to get a reasonable list of participants. I hope to do it pre Christmas, hopefully during November. I'll be emailing participants soon with details. (It's more positive to deal with each by email that wonder if someone read a post in the way you might have wond...

Re: Am I allowed to luff?

Quite right about the wake. Those hulls must be made to go faster or something, but the Calmac babies (ex Argyll Ferries) are ridiculous. Western seem much more business-like.

Re: Am I allowed to luff?

I've had a silly experience in that vicinity too. I went to the aid of a mobo in difficulty about 1/2 mile NW of Cloch. He did get his engine going, but I was not confident that it would keep running, so I agreed by radio (C16 so ferry could hear) to standby him until he was sure. Western Ferry call...

Re: Forum time quirk?

After eventually remembering my password, I logged in. Still shows UTC as it says, whether logged in or not. On passwords... I now have 127 passwords to remember. Banks, websites, cards, phone, car, burglar alarm, work, leisure. I'm so glad my boat works when raising the sails, without having to put...

Re: welcome anchorages

You know that CCC sailing directions updates are available free on line. You can just look on the CCC website, and get the latest updates. Those are available until a new edition is printed (typically about 5 year intervals), and then it starts again. If its a new chartlet, you can print out the new...

Re: AIS surprise

Loch Dunvegan (Colintraive) sometimes has this problem too, though its torturous windy lengthy course probably renders it unimportant!
