Re: Antares charts

For this season coming I just acquired a new toy, tablet running Marine Navigator on Android. I have yet to experiment with integrating Antares.

Re: Where is it?

Some where cold - look its snowing there. Huge flakes too.

My first thought on seeing this was somewhere north of Skye on west coast mainland.

Re: Antares charts

I use Seaclear, and the Antares charts run seamlessly with the ordinary ones.
Only slight glitch is scale. When I go over the boundary of an Antares chart it comes up at too big and I have to reduce size a bit.
I'm on my fourth year of charts, there are a huge number of them now.

Re: Sweeps/long oars

I made 2 oars and have used them 2 years. This first time we rowed from about Salen to Duart. 2 knots. Passed 15 boats to later see them pass us when wind got up again. NOt sure that I'll ever use them again, but they were fun to make and look nice!

Mooring servicing - Clyde?

Since one servicing outfit ceased business, there's maybe only one? Seems pretty busy (doesn't reply anyway). Is there another?

Re: Drinks

Electric charts for Faroes - that sounds good. What voltage (format)? I'd like to get some in .KAP format. Any ideas where to get?

Re: Drinks

I seriously considering Faroes for summer 2019. No specific date yet, but sort of loosely thinking a week to get there, a week there and a week back. Depart Clyde for Stornoway, then on to Suderoy (south end), and meander north through the islands. Similar route back, though Orkney and Caledonian Ca...

Re: Interesting plans from Calmac

I sail past Western Ferries pier at McInroys point Gourock often and have always admired that system of holding the ferry by the propulsion system against a pier built for that. I see they have now started rebuilding the Dunoon side pier after this summer doing the Gourock side. Is it true that West...

Re: Broadford Bay Skye developments?

I have sailed past there! But not stopped, didn't seem much to stop for .
It's as part of the editorial team of the CCC Sailing directions that I'm enquiring after someone reported a new pontoon there.
Someone else has suggested that this could be the Kyle pontoons wintering location?

Broadford Bay Skye developments?

Can anyone report any developments of pontoons or a new quay in Broadford Bay Skye?
There's a report from a passing yacht of something happening there. Anyone know what?

Re: Any news from the west?

I should have said "I support SOME local use" or words to that effect. I don't agree with locals hogging it, and filling the facilities.
