Re: Port Ellen & Gigha

I can now answer the second part. The new Gigha moorings are in place (23). The new landing stage and pontoons are still work in progress and I was advised that completion is likely to be September.

Thanks

Re: AIS installations

I have AIS aerial on pushpit and regularly pick up contacts at 25M. Great bit of kit and I would like to upgrade to transmitter but costs still prohibitive, for me anyway.
