Re: Value of winter boat cover ?

I was thinking that as well but didn't really have a clue. At the end of the day it is only worth what someone will pay and that the cost of brand new cover will have little bearing on that. Came with a boat I bought and brought back from the Netherlands where they tend to do winter covers more than...

Value of winter boat cover ?

Hi All, I have an overall winter cover for a Beneteau 473 that came with previous bout. I never used it although it is used but in good condition. I need to make space and will try to sell later this year when the lock down is over. Has anybody a clue as to how to value it ? I have absolutely no ide...

Re: A riddle

The water level will go down? My theory late on a Friday night is - On deck the weight of the anchor, say 20kg, will displace 20 litre of water. When dropped it will displace less than that because it is denser than water so occupies less volume so the water level will go down. If it was a useless a...

Re: New moorings and pontoon in Ardminish Bay, Gigha

Does anyone know if they have left much room to anchor? As I understand it they have increased the number of mooring significantly. Have a deeper draft so presume I can't go inside the moorings so hoping I don't have to be too far out near the reef.

Re: North Ayrshire Moorings

just followed the link and am a bit confused by the following wording - "The moorings are free for visitors to use, however we would appreciate a small donation to go towards their maintenance - £5 for a day visit and £10 for an overnight stay. You’ll find Honesty Boxes ashore for cash donation...

Re: WHAM

Thanks Derek. After reading your response I went back in via my laptop which still showed the old version. I then pressed the refresh button and up came the updated version!

Don't know how to stop that happening though and how many other times it happens on other pages.

Re: WHAM

Just realised what is happening. When I go on via my tablet it shows the update but when I go on via my laptop it is still the old version. I take it that means they have still to update the windows version or a technical glitch has reverted the windows version back to previous version. Thanks for t...

WHAM

Went on the news section of WHAM a couple of days ago and it had just been updated last week. Been back on today to check out the details and it seems to have reverted to the previous update from February. Anyone any ideas as to why that would happen?

Re: Vancouvers

Yes plenty of space. Normally berthed at Kirkcudbright but ashore just now for the winter at Ardrossan. We were up the west coast last year for a while and anchored in the lagoon a few times. I take it that it was your Claymore on a mooring there?
