But "Muckin' the byre" to the same tune was, if my memory serves me right.

It was a wee bit breezy in Peterhead yesterday as well. At least it's a bit sheltered with the wind from the west.

Anything that the wind got a hold of would have been in Norway PDQ :o

I tend to agree with your viepoint, but I'm sure if you posted the same on TOP, you'd find that the whole thing would degenerate into a complete fiasco.

But that's just my opinion . . . .
I could be wrong . . . .
I wouldn't want to upset enyone, now would I?

I've sort of lost my bearings a bit since it's at least a couple of years since I've been there.

Is this the bit that used to have the pontoons in it that you approached to the left end of the peir?

If it is, it's about time something was done with it!

Thanks for the forecast Simon, but with F8's forecast for Northeast Scotland on Saturday, looks like I'll be working down below decks again :) At least I can have the heating on full blast, and stop for a brew every 20mins. (It takes 20 mins for the kettle to boil, make the brew and drink it - just ...

I'd also vote for a Beta. Rowana came with one which had been fitted new in 2000. Hasn't missed a beat. I did change the original battery layout, and now have 2 x 75Ah batteries in parallel for domestic/navigation use plus a 60Ah cranking battery. I then started going through fan belts at a fair old...

I have used them in the past, but I found that my order came in 2 or more deliveries. Nothing wrong in that I suppose, but I find that Marinestore seem to be better in getting stuff to me. I WON'T use Force 4, as they tried to charge me "Highlands & Islands" delivery rates. Others don'...

Peterhead Marina

Nick,

Clicked your link for Peterhead marina and got some error message.

I think it means the link has changed.

If I am not too late there is a most smart looking Twister next to me in the big shed at Fairlie for sale. I have not taken a close look as she is covered but the hull looks good. The sign says £18.5k. Is that ball-park? If you have interest I could get a phone number.... I looked at a Twister in ...

Last couple of years I've bought the PBO small craft book.

Small enough to carry on board, and doesn't feel like a load of extra ballast.

Suits me, anyway.
