Re: Snow

An excellent spread of festive ameliorations this year, thanks.
Mind you, the cooling fan on my PC does ramp up to maximum every time I load the site :D

Re: headlining

I've begun what may well be more than a lifetime's project to replace my headlining with UPVC profiles/strips. Clearly it only works on flattish panels but the effect is really nice (in the eye of this beholder..). Elsewhere, such as the heads ceiling I've replaced the vinyl with a sheet of Formica ...

Re: Camping Gaz

Camping Gaz screwcaps about £4 on Ebay - I don't think there's a readily-available source. Refilling from a Calor, or other, butane bottle is... easy (I was going to say foolproof :-) ) and does save a bob or two. Some folk even put propane in them for a bit more wooompf, after all propane cylinder ...

Re: How's your Summer going?

Still ashore at the moment. We tend, due to other commitments, hobbies etc, to just go afloat for a summer cruise these days. Last year's such trip wasn't much fun entailing as it did a month of rain and near-gales (plus a few real ones). Keeping an eye on the weather for August, which we have free,...

Re: Hamsi's sail blog

One year and a bit on and they've just returned; their latest blog entry puts them in the Sound of Mull at 18:15 today. Good effort.

Re: Well yer a boring bunch a fannies . . .

If you have not bought your new anchor, buy the Knox, ............ Plus it's made in Scotland. Though they were galvanised in Englandshire ...... maybe that has changed recently? Fabricated in Forfar, galvanised in Cumbernauld I believe - although don't take my word for it, Geoff (mm5aho) will give...

Re: Canal newbie

Thanks again for the advice. I will get the owner to make an inventory of all the ropes.. Our method, for what it's worth (not a lot I hear you shout!), is 2 long warps that will fit the (preferably self-tailing) sheet winches and 2 snatch blocks. Bow: snatch block on the bow roller with warp led b...

Re: BlueMoment manuals downloads disabled

Neptunesboy, I see that we have the same boat, which is something of a surprise given how few of them there are. Nothing more to add than that - I just thought it worth mentioning.. :)

Here's ours.

Re: Bulk Purchase again anyone? Antifoul?

Money on its way shortly Geoff. Again many thanks.

Derek - if you are able and willing to collect my 4 tins and bring them over to Creran at some point that too would be very much appreciated.

Re: Bulk Purchase again anyone? Antifoul?

Many thanks Geoff. Can you send me your bank details please. I rarely go to any of your 3 locations, in fact the last time that I did was to collect my anchor chain, but there's clearly there's no hurry anyway. On the other hand my boat is in the same yard as Derek's fleet so we may be able to organ...

Re: Bulk Purchase again anyone? Antifoul?

Yes please Geoff. 4 x 2.5L for me but I'd like an opt-out if it's anything other than a shade of blue.
