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 ...

Re: Claymore

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...

Re: Claymore

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.

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

Re: Yacht Cradle For Sale

MRC are selling off their 6 leg ones (and they have a few!) for £1,000 inc VAT. 8 leg ones are £1,250. So I suspect you may need to sell for the same price to get a deal done.

Re: Sealing windows into frames

In case it helps others... We have Triplex glass ports, some up to three feet long, let into a routered teak cabin trunk. They were all leaking (all 10 of them), and I took them all out this winter. To my horror I discovered that the three feet long ones were curved by up to 0.5 inches by nothing mo...

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

Not wanting to start a spat but I have had several autopilots. Two that I dealt with (ST2000 tiller and ST4000 wheel) didn't have a rudder or ram position feedback. The 4000 suggested that a rudder position sensor would improve performance. The 2000 had limit switches to stop the motor at extreme t...

Re: Cuan Transit Poll

We transit the Cuan about 10 times each year but if there are strong winds SW round to SE the anchorage right down in the elbow near the passage through to Ardinamir is excellent and not difficult to enter especially if you have Antares Charts. Yes - but just watch out when you're anchoring. Last y...

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

Hands up - I know nothing specifically about autopilots but I am an engineer. The control box must have to know where the ram is in order to function*. So there must be something inside the ram that tells the box where it is - and if that's not working, nothing will. If it doesn't know the current r...
