Re: Rockall experience

I went with Jim on Saboo. I'm sure Jim is going to write up an article. Awesome place. We were very lucky in that the morning we go out to Rockall the weather abated and we were able to get quite close to the rock. I'll not steal Jim's thunder and let him do his write-up. Claymore - no wigs but ther...

Re: Balloch Dodgers

Full? That's a bit worrying. Aja ducked out at the weekend and made for Kip where she awaits the abatement of the weather before going round to JWD. Better phone Graeme and give him the good news in the morning. Rafting allowed?????

Re: Being Retired

I came to the boat in June and have been home for two separate weeks since. Done about 6/7 weeks sailing and loads of fettling. I suppose it will have to end some time but there is no rush. I reckon from May till now I've had about two weeks in my own bed with the prospect of a wee sail up from Dub...

Re: Being Retired

I'm still at that stage where I can't quite imagine what I'd do if retiring, but you are fast removing that impediment! Put simply you run out of time to do everything you have planned. I'm totally amazed at how fast the days are going. Today we got up, tidied the boat a bit - I cleaned around the ...

Being Retired

Is there anything better than a Sunday night meal in the Colintraive Hotel then back to the boat for cheese and biscuits and coffee with the heating on. Not a cloud in the sky and temperature dropping quickly.

Re: BT

Good to hear you've been successful - 130bhp* seems rather fast to me. We've been 'promised' 50-55 bhp which is way better than the 1.75 bhp that we actually got on the old system......
