Re: Think we have been had!

Thanks Ash. It was a credit card payment although it seems like paypal act an a agent for the company. It was for £30 odds, not a huge amount but enough for a poor sole like me :( I have emailed the company again advicing them of my intended actions if they dont deliver the goods. (I dont mean drast...

Think we have been had!

We made an online purchase for an item from an Irish company. On getting to the checkout we had the option of paying by card or paypal, the latter we dont use so opted for credit card. We subsequently recieved email confirmation of payment and reciept number, not from the company but from paypal. Th...

Re: To go round the Mull with this forecast?

I've just been told I'm doing the navigating for this trip. Out of Kip, down to Campbeltown, Mull of Kintyre, past Gigha and to Tayvallich. It should be a cinch for my first attempt. Something nice and easy...... :sailing: LS Why not cut out Campbeltown altogether and set a course for Sanda. A much...

Re: No way to describe a tender.............

I guss the square bow will create some resistance if an outboard is used.
No oars supplied, like having a chart plotter without the charts! :twisted:
Me thinks an inflatabable would be much safer.

Lobster pots

Is it a requirement to have a licence to put down a couple Lobster pots for personal consumption in and around the Firth of Clyde?

Re: Clyde badly contaminated by plastic debris

The little bits of plastic we all (and I'm including the fish) eat don't seem so bad. It's the chemicals that leach out which are not so nice. They go into fish flesh and don't get flushed out so they accumulate. This is worse in fatty fish like salmon-just one of the many reasons I will never eat ...

Re: West Coast of Scotland charts

run seamlessly on yer ipad with Memory Map. They make running aground so much more precise... Have a look - http://www.antarescharts.co.uk Other flavours of charting software are available. I see that they would work with OpenCPN too. Most importantly, do they show Claymore's Rock in Cuan Sound? As...

Shrimpy

Thanks Nick for a fantastic read.
What a great success story though sad he died so young.
It would be great to see pics of his voyage which were apparently in the printed book.
Really enjoyed it.

I am currently reading Webb Chiles, Alone around Cape Horn. Books on these lines I enjoy, but will...

Re: Musto deck shoes

Oops, 3 sizes too small! I have an old catamaran for sale, with a bit of creativity you could make a nice pair from its hulls and they would be waterproof. I guess you dont need a dinghy to get ashore then. :lol: :lol: :lol: The biggest pair of shoes I have ever seen was in Denmark, size 18. :shock...
