Re: St Kilda Challenge

Tough night by the look of it - only 5 (big) boats still heading for St.Kilda.

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...

Not Aberdeen, but N.Fife (across from Dundee) -> Barcaldine sometime soon, probably early next week.

Re: New website for Broadblue Catamarans

Broadblue 365S
- 'She 385 is designed for single or' should be 'The 385..'
- 'She is virtually unsinkable due to its watertight bulkheads' replace 'its' with 'her'?

Re: New website for Broadblue Catamarans

Home page
- there seems to be an extra space in 'and safety'
- should be 'built in' rather than 'build in'
- capitalisation of 'The Future of Performance Cruising' on the Rapier 550 picture doesn't match the other picture texts.

Re: Raising the Nancy Glen

Job done then. Personally I think it's the right thing to do for a wreck in inshore waters. What a grim job for someone though.

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,...
