Re: Well my Buckos

Already lifted out in the third week of August and snug with mast down at Creran. Off tomorrow to France, Spain and Portugal for 8 weeks in the motorhome. Too many hobbies..

Re: Claymore's Bits and Pieces

I suspect that it went in before the engine compartment and associated furniture (some really nice teak woodwork that I'd rather not damage) was built around it. Even If I were to drag it forward into the saloon it won't go through the main hatch in a simple lift and although it's a centre cockpit b...

Re: Claymore's Bits and Pieces

I have one of those nice red things too, a 43, but sadly mine still resides in my shed at home, where it took up residence late in 2015. The builder of my boat seems to have done so around the engine and I simply can't find a way of getting the red beast in there even reasonably intact. While I don'...

Re: St Kilda Challenge

Looking forward to 'watching' this - thanks for the link.
I'm glad I didn't apply for Geoff's vacant crew position as my role would have been limited to lying on the saloon floor vomiting into a bucket.

Re: South and West this time

Our clockwise round Ireland was in 2000 so not quite as far back as Wully's. We had June and July too. June was freezing cold with strong Northerlies and we were held up for a whole week twice, firstly in Bangor and then in Dingle. July was wet and equally boisterous so it was a character-building t...

Re: New website for Broadblue Catamarans

Broadblue 365S
- 'She 385 is designed for single or' should be 'The 385..'

Re: New website for Broadblue Catamarans

Home page
- there seems to be an extra space in 'and safety'

Re: Raising the Nancy Glen
