Re: News on Covid and Access Issues

Tobermory Harbourinformation.
Briefly (subject to change!):
Book in before arrival.
Limited pontoon space and few moorings.
Pay online. No showers or toilets till 15/7.
Some shops are open but the Mishnish is closed for now but McGochans beer garden seems to have risen from the ashes.

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

Tobermory will be slightly open from tomorrow https://www.tobermoryharbour.co.uk/as-you-arrive but with restrictions. I wonder what the welcome will be like in the Mishnish? Perhaps McGochans will be more appropriate. I had an email from Dunstaffnage to the effect that they will allow owners from > ...

Glad we got launched last week and have enjoyed some sunny day sails. Yesterday was HOT and starting to look a bit busy with yachts.

Re: oar / oars required

I think there's 1 or 2 aluminium/plastic standard inflatable oars in the loft. Do you want me to check?

Re: How to get launched?

Confession time. We live 6 miles from our winter boatyard so on Sunday, we went antifouling. First visit since late March. I don't remember leaving such a mess but that's often the way theses days. The yard was only offering launch to nearby residents. I didn't ask what the criterion is exactly but ...

The obvious way to check if your eyesight is good enough to drive safely is to drive 60 miles on public roads. I'm relieved he chose English roads for the investigation.

Re: Tigh an Truish - Anchoring Off

Some time in the 1990s, we took Snark (Kelt 9m lifting keel, draft about 1 m) to within about a mile of TnT before the nerve failed and we anchored. Never actually touched the bottom but it was getting worse ... I see Antares has been now so it may be easier, or at least better advised. The pub's sh...

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

Might you take some comfort from this post in TOP? Re the travel thing. This is the BBC's interpretation of it: In addition, people will be able to travel - preferably by walking or cycling - for recreation, although they will be asked to remain "where possible" within or close to their ow...

Can anyone explain?

It was first noted by Aja in February http://www.bluemoment.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=13178&p=55891#p55891.

The "Most users" figure (right at the bottom of the Board Index) keeps having convulsions. Why?

Deck Floodlight

A sealed beam unit very like this one. A bit corroded at the terminals but still functional. It's 12V, 40W. Available for postage (£3.10 I think) or less if collected while maintaining suitably safe distance from Connel.

I am disappointed. I thought you would take this virtual opportunity to enjoy the Whitehouse Restaurant.
