Re: Retirement? My arse!

Between Oban sailing club and a ramp on Kerrera if I remember right.
Looks like not a lot of wind, but might be better tomorrow night for the nigh trip to Sanda.

Re: Retirement? My arse!

I'm leaving for Oban and the SIPR on Tuesday night after work. Probably stop at Whiting Bay Arran for 6 hours sleep then round the MoK and northwards arriving in Oban in the small hours Thursday. But if there's no wind we might stop and catch a few more Zs somewhere north of Pladda Luing. Find a par...

Re: RIP Cruiser Uno :(

Flag. https://flagpaints.co.uk/marine/ They have two types, cruising and "performance" I've used the cruising for a few years and it works well in the Clyde and west coast areas I've sailed. Several of us combined a year back and bought a job lot. I'm now down to 2.5 tins left after a 2 co...

Re: Ignorance

I used to live and work in the north (Elgin) and a girl in our office, in her mid 20s had never been as far as Aberdeen or Inverness in the other direction. I suspect there are many Scots who know very little Scottish Geography. Here in Cumbernauld today, I had some ask me "Hey Geoff, You're or...

Re: Gael Force own brand anti fouling paint

I wonder who makes Gale Force's brew? I don't think its Flag, the brand we bulk bought. Contender had that Flag Blue on it last year and despite being quite close to Marisca on a mooring, didn't have more than a wee bit slime at year end on haul-out. In fact there was more above the waterline from t...

That guy at the WHO, is probably a doctor (of medicine).

Re: Flu

Perhaps I should have for the syringe to be held upside down?

Or had the jab in the under-arm?

Or the nether regions?

Re: Flu

I had the jab for the first time last autumn, after being encouraged to for a couple of years by the medics. I've had the worst winter I can remember. Two separate bouts of flu (fever, cough, diahorrea, congestion and all over aching) and we're not even at the end of February! I'll be pretty relucta...

Re: Pesky Kids!

I installed a permanent catheter to my gland, and can pump in lubricant whenever I feel the need. Modified a vintage grease gun to help with pumping.

Seems that you old "burden" wants to join the Round Rockall Rival Rally. Be nice to see such a colourful boat there.

Re: South and west of Islay?

I was heading to the Clyde one year, single handed and decided to round Islay to the west side. Wind was about F5, from SW, and I'd come from Scalasaig, Colonsay. I'd not been this way before, and thought to go into Port Ellen, overnight there and continue on toward MoK. As I tacked through between ...
