Excuse me

Today Troon, tomorrow the World, or at least the GreyTown en-route to Ardminish and all points West.
If I can get this

Y-Fi working and find a hotpot, I'll be in touch, otherwise you lot behave yourselves in my absence.
Ah, the soft Scottish rain. My wellies are already loupin' with excitement.

That rain you mentioned - is that the stuff that means non-Claymore sailors have to buy those waterproofie thingies?

Have a great Cruise Bill - hopefully see you in a week or 3

You can't miss it. It is just past the sand works. Which seems to be re-starting.

We went there for one night and very pleasant it was too. Odd pricing though, £2.10 per metre. Includes leccy. Water is available but pick a berth nearer the hose than we did. Oh and don't go on the hammer-heads, they are for BIG boats. Pontoon Peter comes down to extract the cash. The next night we went up to the head of the loch for a free shot in the lovely big muddy anchorage.

Ken, you're talikng about the Loch Aline pontoon, and yes, they are pumping out the sand mine and resurrecting the business...
I was talking about the much talked-about Oban pontoon - which isn't.
We're in Tobermory at the moment, probably Drumbui tonight then Dunstaffnage. The Soup-dragon has hurt her back and isn't in the mood to go any further - So Jim, no Skye I'm afraid.
We hope to go to the zoo in Ardfern for Thursday - I hear their new goat will be arriving then.
