Re: Lofrans Kobra

Hi Dave

Best thing to do - I think - is to go here: https://www.lofrans.com/library

Where there are full drawings so you’re not relying on my dodgy measurements.

Kind regards,
Hugh

Lofrans Kobra

My 12 volt Lofrans Kobra (approx 1998 vintage) died on me this summer during our cruise and in the interests of family harmony I fitted a new one in week 2. I took the old one home and discovered the following: > Seawater had corroded the motor case > The oil seal had failed, partially filling the m...

Re: Gentleman's Cruise 2020 - Virtual Edition

That was a big night. I've just woken up and there's no-one here. Chuffing tide is turning now so I'm going to have to motor up the Sound while I scrape the white fur off my tongue. Lucky I have a new autopilot so can simultaneously scrape fur and make limited progress north west.

Re: Gentleman's Cruise 2020 - Virtual Edition

We don't do pontoons. I'm anchored further up the loch but we've just pottered down in the dinghy with three hormonal teenagers. They're looking for beer and cider and I'm hoping that Claysie will offer me a dram...

Ships passing in the day

I had the pleasure of meeting Gardenshed in Grovee Craobhee on Saturday evening - a real pleasure. And today was spent drifting around the top end of the Sound of Jura drinking coffee and then beer, interrupted by a chat with Marisca. The entrance to the Sound of Kerrera was punctuated with a small ...

Re: I know who this is!

Glad all is well. Looks a bit punchy in the pics. Drink in WHYW? Sarah’s cocktail locker is open! Would you have us believe that you offered your services to the RNLI as a practice casualty? Not quite, I was very pleased to see them but they did have a new crewman on board for his first training sai...
