Re: Will there be a wake?

better quarellsome drivel than drivelsome drivel for drivel's sake . . . . I thought you were trying to encourage postings to this site? I still harbour a vague hope that it might become a sailing forum again instead of a vehicle for geriatric whimsy and niggling the proprietor. It has a year's gra...

Re: Will there be a wake?

Date was a screw-up, I meant Dec 31st 2019, a year from now. Drink had not been taken, I think that was the problem. Now rectified.

Re: Boaty contractors in the Oban area

IMG button only works if you post an image URL, i.e. an image that is already online.

I don't want people uploading large quantities of random images to the server.
