Re: filming

Many thanks all for your contributions, I really appreciate the time you all took to think about it and reply. Annoyingly the Production company has gone silent on me and is not replying to my communications and I take that as their way of saying we are not coming to Scotland to do this commercial. ...

Thanks Donald. I have not been there by land or sea but looking at photos it does look very good.
Thanks again

The jetty/breakwater is stone and concrete.
More at http://maidensharbour.co.uk/ if of interest.
Just North of Turnberry.


Many thanks for the info. I will find out.

Many thanks for that. I will take a look at it.

I am looking for a traditional old world style harbour with stone quay/jetty in the Clyde estuary for use in a TV commercial.
It needs to have enough depth at low water springs to take a 2 metre draught, and the jetty needs to be in reasonable working condition.
Anyone any ideas>
Thanks

Re: Perception of Self

One could have bought a used 2009 model which is being sold by SolentBoy from TOP... "With just 2000 miles and 300 engine hours under her belt she presents a unique opportunity to own one of the finest examples of this outstanding marque." I do hope he has checked that there are sails in ...

Re: Perception of Self

When do you take delivery of the new yat? It's a bit late for this season, early next year would be good? One hopes that the new Rustler 44 will be ready for one's summer hols in 2012. Tim is sooo excited, and can hardly wait. One could have bought a used 2009 model which is being sold by SolentBoy...

Re: Perception of Self

Are you the person you portray yourself to be on here? Well, having made only 10 posts since joining in March I simply have not had the time to cultivate my MR Hyde persona, as the cape isn't ready yet. On the whole, yes, my posts reflect me, feeling my way in a new forum. It's difficult to post a ...

Re: Calendar

. No, not my yacht. Getting Kathy to sail right round Mingulay just so I could take a piccy would be a tad excessive . . . and if it was Fairwinds the genny would have been flying as well.

Re: Calendar

Lets see.... one the one hand very nice photo which, I would guess, took a bit of effort to get if that is your yacht in the piccy. On the other hand, grand headland that it is, for a calander photo, a tad boring? (unless it is one's yacht of course). Is it one's yacht Nick? :) Actually I think this...

Re: Granton Etc

Although I now live in Ireland I am sorry to hear that Granton doesn't appear to have improved since I used to sail there 40 years ago. A capsize was dreaded due to the untreated sewage and the subsequent days of illness. It was a dump then with gangs roaming the streets, outnumbered only by scruffy...
