Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

Just to clarify, I am fairly sure I had Covid-19 whilst skiing in northern Italy in late feb. The symptoms weren't the usual ( I was extremely fatigued, elevated, but not high temp and mild dizziness & nausea for 2 days). So I would like a test, if only to confirm that I did have it, and got ov...

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

I took a wee gander at some of the submissions to the consultation (the original topic of this thread). Not all of them are a paragon of balanced reporting. Seems cruisers never need local facilities because they don't need to go ashore (for food, dispose of rubbish, do laundry) can always find some...

Re: Belfast

Went to Bangor last May for 2 nights. Ended up staying a month. Great place in itself with lots of pubs, restaurants, cinema etc plus an easy train ride into Belfast. Considered moving the boat there - might still do for a season.

Re: holy loch sinking

That'll be it. Thanks.
I haven't been monitoring the NTMs very frequently so only just noticed it - it was posted a wee while ago. From the aeriels etc she doesn't look like some of the old relics littering the coastline. Was she temporarily out of commission due to the lurgy?

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

If you are "sure" you have had it, why do you need a test to confirm? And you would need a test that does not yet exist. Look, I'm content that just about everyone on here is in the habit of making considered, risk-based decisions (maybe that's actually what stay alert is meant to mean, I ...

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

I'm amazed TOP didn't crash the second Bee-Jay mentioned watersports. I'll be staying at home, even if some country needs more lerts. Always reminds me that wales us a principality, led by a prince. Scotland is a kingdom, led by a king. England is a country, . . .

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

No thanks. I'll sit this one out. And so should all the other stupid, selfish, short sighted sods who have supported the idea of getting sailing again on that stupid fekking website. I won't contribute to the website as I don't believe I want to give it oxygen. Frustrating that the stupid, selfish ...

Re: Fixing a hole in a boat

I've realised a potential snag. In some parts of the world, there's a tiny fish that has a habit of swimming up what can only be described as "yer jap's eye" and causes all sorts of internal mayhem. Don't know if they have it in Stornoway, but if so, it could be pooo-er, very pooo-er.

Re: Fixing a hole in a boat

Yes. I think if you find a hole, best to head for the Crinan so you can deploy this handy, effective technique.
