Re: Saily people are nice people.

I am sad for you both, but kinda glad he had a good go at life. If someone can mutter that at my funeral, I would be chuffed.

Re: TCM and Nick's unofficial skipper test - almost there...

I think as long as you have laid out your ecopower plan for crossing big boys sea without using 1200 litres of our historical subterranean liquified forest, you ought ot be Ok. Bit like not mentioning the war round our Prussian Euromates. Also, you might like to consider shipping loads of Pukka Pies...

Re: Being Serious for Once

I believe I gave a better account of the East Coast? We invited them to dinner and a presentation, and I had them aboard for the night, and they were sent off with a decent full English Sunday brekkie.

Adjust left knacker for Radio 4, scratch knackers in tandem for Falmouth Coastguard.

Re: Any rational explanation or just Cooncil daftness?

Happy Days.

I used to stop at the Cluanie both ways travelling from Kyle to Aberdeen.
Coffee and breakfast one way, beer and crisps the other.

Was also a resident at Plockton Hotel after being turfed out of the Rev Lamonts B&B for being unsuitable.
