Re: Condition surveys for the insurance

I would strongly recommend you change insurer. More often than not its the underwriters who are asking. It cost me a lot of money which included a full rigging replacement. I reasoned that the premium should be markedly reduced upon completion otherwise what's the point in doing it? What you are doi...

Re: Night time sailing

Great stuff! The advanced night navigation from the pub at Clachan Sound, Tigh nae Troosers, to the anchorage at Puilladobhrain would be a feather in your cap. Some have never made it.

Re: Removing Treadmaster

Replaced the Correx with protectascreen.com equivalent. £25 for 5 sheets each 2.4 by 1.2mts by 2mm.

It's clear enough to see through to the Treadmaster and mark it off.

Usefully, it's completely waterproof ...

Removing Treadmaster

I'm contemplating removing about 10 sq mtrs of the stuff and I did a small test patch with an Aldi £24 multi-tool scraper which showed the glue to be quite dark. It was laid 19 yrs ago and I'm thinking they used Sikaflex and not the Treadmaster epoxy which is a cream colour. Of course, it could be a...

Re: Danelandia

The Silkie is named for its atypically fluffy plumage, which is said to feel like silk. The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as black skin and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot, whereas most only have four.

Re: Surveyor Recommendation

Anyone like to recommend a surveyor for an out of water condition insurance survey? Boat is at James Watt Dock. Cheap 'n cheerful rather than in depth. Regards Donald Donald I undertook this instead of just changing the insurer. The boat's rigging being over 10 years old, was condemned without any ...
