Re: Edinburgh or Greenock to Ardfern?

Alastair - I'm in Crieff (as I think you know, given that I sold you a dodgy outboard 2 years ago!). I'm going to Ardfern on Wednesday if that's of any use? Rgds, Hugh.

Re: Next week

Claysie

I may be there on Wednesday to service the engine (mine, not your gleaming new one). I'll look out for you. Please do update me on your re-wiring successes...

Re: Integrating old and new electronics

Claysie

You'll see now that I previously shared your current pain. I hope the wiring mystery is becoming clearer and the spaghetti is becoming more like linguini. Or something. Are you still sitting in the skipper's seat, dram in hand, while your manservant re-routes your amps?

Re: Integrating old and new electronics

..... and now the big question - how much and how long to do it? Ah yes - there is that to consider! The kit was about £3,000. I had to get the yard to fit the radome but I did everything else myself in about 9 days (including making the chart table pieces and varnishing them). Most of the time was...

Integrating old and new electronics

I thought it might be worth writing up my recent project in case anyone else is interested in how to integrate old and new electronic kit. The boat was fitted with the following when I bought her: Raymarine E120 MFD with GPS mushroom Raymarine 24" 4kW radome Raymarine ST60 wind/depth/log array ...

Re: Shuggingtons

Sorry Claysie - I don't often pass by this forum (or any) any more and missed your post. I'm just back from 4 nights on Sarah with the family. We're launched and were hoping to sail but various things conspired against us (no mainsail, A&E in Lochgilphead, force 9 in the inshore waters) so we've...

Re: Claymore

Cracking rhyme... I've gone over the season in forensic detail and the only possibility there was for a crunch like that without me noticing was when she went into the water at a different yard. Ah well, you live and learn. Good of Bob & team to get it all sorted so quickly. My wallet will hurt ...

P.S. Having returned home with a dab of Trilux 33 behind each ear, Mrs Shuggy thinks this is a sign of amour.

Re: Claymore

Claysie I'm so glad you enjoyed it. The foie gras was something I just had knocking around and the lobster was nothing special. I hope that the fitting of the thermonuclear reactor in the fine shup Claymore goes to plan but on reflection I'm not sure about the planing foils. Beware the maidens in th...

It now turns out I will be there on Tuesday - look forward to catching up. When was the last time? Tobermory in 2006?

Re: Claymore

Towards the bogs. How classy. I may just have had a call to action for work so may not be there... but if I am, please drop round. I have 2 year old caramel wafers too. Because they’ve been sharing a Tupperware box with kit kats, they’ve adopted a homogeneous chocolate biscuit taste. But the coffee ...

Re: Claymore

Monday to Wednesday. Do drop round for coffee. I'm about 5 boats along from you. The coffee was green but I have upgraded it to brown.

Re: Claymore

Ahoy Claysie I knew that you would be on top of the cardboard spec; I hear that it's more sustainable than teak and the corrugations are good for grating cheese if one should need to do so and cannot find where the grater is. I am making 12 volt spaghetti on board. I have a 'ground' problem (some sa...

Claysie

I see the good shup Claymore is having some work done to her. I notice that they were using cardboard to make something to go on the deck. Just a word of warning: it'll go soggy in the wet.

Happy to help.

Re: Autopilot fix or replace, who to go to?

Ah well - looks like I was wrong. Never mind, I wouldn't trust me either ;-)
