My former GP and close friend Dick Jackson first introduced me to the area at that time - he bought debentures or whatever in Craobh - then lost it when they went bust but he kept his boat there SeaRowan - a Macwester Rowan Crown.

Re: A riddle

I often find the questions are more important than the answers. Surely there will be a difference depending on the type of anchor you are deploying - The Bruce (Robert on Claymore) will surely displace more water than a rocna or a cqr so which would mean the water level would go up.....

I was always a little uncertain that it would engage if I went into reverse - it always did but I always worried. We had a new drive train installed in 1997 after I'd manage to sail over fish...

As I Write

I ought to be sat in a 'GoMassif' minibus being trundled up the hill to Flaine - just in time for Dinner in the hotel, Dear Heart and Grandchildren all happy and smiling and filled with excitement and the hopes and promises of a great week skiing together
