Re: Claymore's Bits and Pieces

My chart table is high off the ground without much head room, does Senga have long legs and a short back? Just asking?

Re: Forth and Clyde this year?

Best to ask them. They did have some limited transits by hiring a crane last back end IIRC. I heard they got a boat load of grant money but spent it all on the Calley. Also heard they are repairing one of the lift bridges but I thought that 2 were bust. Ask Scottish Canals, they might know, but migh...

Re: Wanted to borrow - GPS aerial

I have one that I got to cure the same symptoms on my Garmin 128, but it's down here.

It wasn't dear, I got it off fleabay.

Re: Antares charts

I just bought Antares charts this week too, I can't get Memory Map to work properly yet, the Antares charts come up when I click on them though.

I thought it would be like Open CPN where they load seamlessly as I scroll around.

I'll keep the paper charts at the ready for now.

Re: Marina Pods – the innovation that gives you access to renewable energy on the water

Just been given rather short shrift by the 'Management' who were quick to defend their "wave screen" Ah well - perhaps we should get one installed in Pullers to complement the existing pontoon structures that are in place? Don't start giving ideas to money grabbing capitalists. We don't n...

Re: Claymore has grown a pair ... and a bit

Hmmm, yes the trees may be the giveaway there. I had a discussion with my husband* about the set up of the rigging and mast height -so ten years on this Forum have not been a total loss. To be fair, I had to Google because a Schooner didn't fit (masts shorter from back to front) but Barque didn't s...

Re: Will there be a wake?

And the other thing, Stormy got the "I'm going to pull the plug " email, but I didn't, but I wasn't hurt or dejected. I did think that it was a bit quiet before the message but don't like to post stuff just for the sake of it. Going to ask about chain soon, despite not knowing how big it i...

Re: Will there be a wake?

Someone mentioned facebook, facebook groups are huge and can be useful, but they are excrement compared to forums. They actually move too fast, the information is not easily searched for, and it is very much, of the moment only. Try finding an interesting cruise someone did from 9 months ago if you...

Re: Antares charts

I though that Claymore was one of the surveyors for Antares? You seem to do better than most at finding stuff lurking underwater :shock:

Re: Merry Christmas to all

To be fair, we both did it before and know what to expect, and did it anyway, eyes wide open and all that.

Anyway, it was a good thing to do so feck off with your negativity.

Got loads of whisky for wedding pressies so Seminloe is party boat until it's gone.

Re: Gael Force own brand anti fouling paint

I couldn't get black Cruiser Uno so got the stuff on spesh from Duncans, just so I had something to put on. It was only £50 or maybe £60 for 2 X 2.5l tins so it was cheap. I commented to the bloke jet washing Seminole at Ardfern when she was coming out to get redone "it looks like that antifoul...

Re: Darren Taylor Yacht Repairs

Just had a look round Darrens WWW site, the listing for Chimera in the "for sale" bit, has a pic of an Ecume De Mer as the banner pic. The rest look like pics of Chimera. The Ecume, Silver Lining, used to be owned by a friend / work colleague. You met him on the pontoon at TV this summer....

Re: Drinks

I'm wishing you all well, from a distance, about 250 miles distance.

I have been to Glasgow Scuttlebutt meets courtesy of Ash and the train to toon, but it would make it a dear night with Travelodge thrown in.

I hope you have a good one.
