Re: Rival 34 for sale

Co-incidentally, there's an obituary to Jim in today's "Times" at https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/obit ... -fsdk8dlj7, a pay site for which I do not have a subscription.

Re: Rival 34 for sale

Very sad indeed. It is Jim McWhir's Rival34 "Rona". We'd got to know Jim from playing with him at the sessions the Old Inn in Carbost, two or three years ago. We'd caught up with him again at the end of May in Stromness during the Orkney Folk Festival and were hoping to see him again when ...

Re: Poorly marked lobster pots and fishing gear - Petition

It's certainly the case that in the Argyll to Inner Sound areas, pots tend to be bright orange and of reasonable size. However that approach is not universal - further north and round into the Northern Isles, old black plastic plastic oil containers seem to be favoured by some, as well as small mank...

Re: Gigha dilemma

The two bays on either side of the doirlinn to Eilean Garbh are fine for overnight anchoring. The north bay gives good protection from SE. Both are in the Antares pack.

We have also anchored overnight in Craro Bay, again covered by Antares, but felt a wee bit uncomfortable about it.

Re: CC2017

Telo is now fully rigged and moored moored at Tigh-Phuirt on Loch Leven. We'll probably start heading north in early May, so would be great to meet up with folk if dates allow.

Well, the Antares chart for Caolas Ban looks interesting, but not tried it yet.

Loch Breachacha was solid jellyfish when we anchored there a few years back. Feall Bay was a pleasant anchorage in settled weather.

Sorry Dave, I'm not following your argument. Why couldn't there be a deficit of £15bn?

After all, the figures published last year by the Scottish government showed a £14.8bn deficit.
