Re: welcome anchorages

I used to look on it as a useful, annually updated, compliment to the CCC pilots which can be out of date by the time I feel like replacing them. After falling foul of two years out of date info in WA when visiting Derry last year I had to revise my opinion. A couple of anchorages are now included i...

Re: Contrary to Popular Opinion

Of course our combined weight comes in <100, almost ( :shock: ) give or take 10yrs, one of the benefits of finding younger crew.

We have condoms, may be out of date LOL.

Re: Contrary to Popular Opinion

Seminole is interested.

Is that Tuesday 27th August?

Do you have box of plans to cover all eventualities?

Re: Now You See Them, Now You Don't - Sailing In A Plastic Tent Is A Bad Idea

I have found this too.

Seminole has an inside steering position with windscreen wiper for the view ahead, but I still have to go out for a good look round frequently when it's wet.

I only hide inside when it's honking it down or we are shipping lots of spray bashing into a headwind.

Re: Is My Knox Broken?

:) My Knox had mud on when I got it aboard at Ardminish this morning. I thought I was in sand!
Never budged apart from the 90° change in wind direction, 15m chain in 3m water :D

Re: Stern chainplate rebuild - thoughts?

That looks substantial and neat, it's not always easy to do both at once.

Re: Nice night

I know that it's an old thread but "is the TnT doing food yet"? Looking at visiting Friday.

Re: AIS / RADAR

I call myself a fair weather sailor but have been caught out in crap visibility a couple of times. A good plotter is OK to tell you where you are. I fitted an AIS so I know where CalMac are, and the other big annoying people. Not really bothered about other yachts which may or may not bounce off wit...

It's a bit late for the May Day Bank Holiday.
Let me know where and when and I'll make an effort to get there.

Re: I never realised

I really don't know what all the bother is about. I have been in and out of Oban North Channel several times over the last several years and not had any problem. OK I have listened to the VHF for a bit before casting off from where ever, and set off in the knowledge that I had a good time to escape...

Re: LED Flares

I gave in a couple of years ago and started buying MnS 36" 29" keks, but need a belt. The 34" jobbies are a bit snug and I keep loosing the button. I'm going to be walking round in my undercrackers if I can't resolve this dilemma.
