Yes, don't. Buy a plotter, they're cheaper.

Re: Lost my Cuan cherry

'Fraid it's just West wind over tide, stronger the wind or tide, the worse it is but it doesn't last long. ( we live on Seil so we're now sort of getting used to it) You could try going through at 'slack' (SIC) water, usually about 1-1.5hrs before HW/LW Oban. First time we went through I thought it ...
