Re: Spinnaker up!

A lot of stuttering going on. F... F.... F...
Once the kite came down Marisca creamed along at hull speed past Beaton Towers.
Must have been cold out there today.

Spinnaker up!

...but not for long.
Marisca choose the lull before a wee squall to hoist the kite for what would have been a pleasant reach back to JWD from Cloch earlier today.
Unfortunately a wee wet squall skooshed through so it was a case of spinnaker down!

Re: Old money (not for rope)

Also had a lovely day yesterday not doing much. Spent a pleasant hour or so at the Waterfront in Greenock for a swim. Old round pounds came in handy for the lockers as Inverclyde Council have not been updated with the knowledge that the coinage has changed.

Re: The complex questions of life

To undo the top button, one has to undo the belt as normally the buckle covers the button.

Re: The complex questions of life

Hope I can help with the finer detail.
I wear Levi 501s with a button fly. To use a urinal I have to undo all the buttons. Not that I'm boasting that is a size thing or anything :nod:

Re: Should be in Lochaline Wednesday

She's looking good, indeed. Unfortunately don't recognise the Puilladobhrain you're in. Looks suspiciously like Loch Crinan?

Re: Should be in Lochaline Wednesday

Must be brand new. We were in Puilladobhran last Thursday and no pontoon to be seen? Sure you're chartplotter wasn't playing up and you were actually in Oban? Easy mistake.

Re: Strange light in the sky.

Well. Came skooshing up the Kilbrennan Sound yesterday after a good decision not to go either to Rathlin or Gigha. Home for a couple of days before trying again though have to be back in the Clyde on Saturday for a Saboo do.
