Thankyou gentlemen, I do know a bit of HTML, I had my own site for a while so I got fairly proficient. It's the square brackets that fox me, I had to put my thinking turnip on to work out how to get some anchor text in there too, but it's reasonably intuitive. I put a few links to lifejackets in tha...

Dead cultured me, I hold my pinkie out when slurping me beer, and I try to fart in the gents. Unfortunately the farting bit is as well as farting in polite company, not instead of.

The grandson is 3 and can't swim. The fact that he has little to no chance of getting away from a responsible adult (ok, a bit of leeway please) is going to be ignored for now. My daughter prefers this . It's a life jacket, has a harness, no loud pop to inflate it, and warm for UK waters. I've seen ...

Childrens Life Jackets, Thoughts Please.

I'm about to do the Grandad thing and buy a lifejacket for the grandson. My kids had a todler thing that was all straps and a big collar, but it was still a buoyancy aid if I remember right. Then they progressed into a dingy type buoyancy aid with a zip up front. I believe that loosing someone from ...

I've never been to Rothsay, inner or outer harbours, the Admiral always warned me off, somat about wash from ferries.

3 questions:

Is the JCB below sea level?

Can Rothsay harbour be spoilt?

Have they managed to do it?

Is bunging it on a trailer and A34, M40, M6, M74 & M8 (and odd bits) seen as defeatist then?

It could be a night passage at that.

Table, bloody luxury...

Head, pass the bucket,

Galley??

I have just used the tide tables up to now, but on the Clyde it's not that difficult. Should I have an Almanac? CCC Sailing Directions were OK.

It took me seconds of practice to get from Ambling Armadillo to Bobbing Bobcat, ie. I had 2 goes. Since my name is Bob, I'm sticking at that.

A report on Look North West last night was on about Spring tides next week, that sounded more like floating it off talk than owt else.

It's supposed to be aproximate to a sewer pipe too, and a cable to the IoM, or was it Ireland?

It could all be smoke and mirrors to make it sound interesting.
