Re: Wetsern Ferries annoyed at me

Pretty poor show by the Western Ferries skipper. Probably just a bad day and, hopefully, not systemic.

Re: Jim McWhir, Rival34 "Rona"

Thanks Rob. Jim was just one these very exceptional people. I'm sorry that we couldn't be with you all in Stornoway, but we'd only just got home after a long absence.

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.
