Re: How to get launched?

The mental calm that comes from just a short sail is such a relief. If you can get out, do it.

Re: oar / oars required

Why were your dinghy oars so dirty?

Re: How to get launched?

Boat is now on Ashton mooring. Shuttled car and bike to avoid public transport, used Avon to get ashore. Good news is I can still get on and off the boat into dinghy, outboard works, and the bad side is the burgeoning ecosystem developing on my mooring junk has been given its marching orders. Quite ...

Re: How to get launched?

I have difficulty in seeing the difference in a local twisting their ankle and someone from 60 miles away doing it. Similarly my place of residence has no effect on my idiocies on the boat. Neither breach Nicola's crowds in beauty spots warning. Anyhoo the diesel leak I fixed in the shed is now wors...

Re: How to get launched?

I'm sorry - the weather is about to revert to the usual pish. It's all my fault. Marisca is once again afloat! JWD banned me from the launch area, something Dom has been trying to do to me for years - I reckon he really needs my helpful input(!), the mast is up and the rigging has commenced. The dec...

Re: Serving

I was self isolating mentally and physically, I thought it was a control board you were wanting.

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

I can't remember the exact words but the message I took, probably because it was what I wanted it to be, was that travel was allowed but congregating at beauty spots was not. She was advocating common sense with stay at home as the default, social distancing if not. I naturally took the message that...

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

Sense and clarity from Nicola - it looks good for next Thursday. Commonsense is what she wants and most sailors up here have it.

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

"Golf, canoeing, hiking, outdoor swimming, angling" all within 5 miles of home!!!!!! Who, the hell, are the demographic they're aiming at? Hiking is defined as "the activity of going for long walks, especially across country" - needs to be modified to include going round in circl...

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

I've been pretty good - started maintaining distance back in March before lock-down started, have been out on my bike the days I haven't had a walk with my wife until Nicola said I could do both - mind you, I didn't know 5 miles was the limit - cut grocery shopping to every 10 days, and otherwise ha...

Re: Fred's moving his boats

The Boudicca visited Rosyth yesterday, went out past the Isle of May, footled around and is now back anchored off Port Seton. That only leaves one missing - the Braemar which turned off its AIS 2 days ago. I suppose one of my mandatory 2 stints of exercise (is Nicola trying to kill us?) could be a c...

Fred's moving his boats

There were 4 Fred Olsen cruise ships parked off Port Seton yesterday. Down to 2 today. They surely can't have paying customers, can they?
