Sorry to bring this thread back on topic, though it's a w/e later, I've been keeping ½ an eye on the weather for the bank holiday w/e and can't make head nor tale of it. I'm going to be cruising in the Clyde and all them long sea lochs/kyles and such. Is the best policy to see what happens? Getting...

I hope I don't sound too thick but I have to ask a daft question. Your profile says Loch Melfort, and there has been mention of the Irish Sea and IOM. Where is the boat? The northerlies coming round to southerlies sort of point to IOM but I can't be sure. Edit: just found a post from a while ago abo...

Hi Nick n Kathy,

I’ve been having a wander around the forums and picking up the odd gem here and there, then I found this. I have been reading for the past week, only coffee times and “when I could prise the kids off the ‘puterâ€

Yeah, but.. Forums can get too busy. There must be a sort of equilibrium level where things are moving along nicely but not too fast for most folks to miss much. I am on the norfolk broads forum, and because they are Broads first and boats way down, another forum was started for people who go on the...

Can I second that bu**er though not in the literal sence. Never mind, try for next w/e, it's bound to be nice then, I'm coming on holiday. That's that theory shot down in flames then :arrow: depart sharpish like.

Thanks for the warm welcome. :D Windermere is good for convenience but I would rather sail up there anyday. I'm quite likeing the trailer sailing though. I got a fortnight on the Norfolk Broads last year too. If you don't like "No Mooring" "Private" signs don't go there, especial...

My parents have a mooring in Tayvallich and I can confirm that the harbour quango can be a bit unhelpfull. The old folks are knocking on a bit and Tarbert is more matched to their energy levels now.

Good afternoon fellow boaters. I have found this site while looking for info prior to my Clyde Cruise in a few days time. I'm planning to arrive at Kip or Largs on Sat 26/05/07 for a 2 week cruise round the Clyde. I only managed a good week (9 nights) last year and spent 3 nights hiding at Kames in ...
