before it takes root to the ground, I've heard that a certain motor-sailer, once owned and fitted out by a washing machine magnate, is being emptied and Ardfern's jumble will benefit from sundry lots such as antimacassars, various sails including an almost unused spinnaker, bits for Bendix washing machines etc including a London taxi cab motor. Don't miss it ....

The clue was in the 'this Saturday' bit which was posted on the Thursday....last Thursday.

So there isn't a boat jumble in Ardfern this Saturday which is the day after tomorrow.

There might well be a boat jumble in Ardrishaig or Lochgilphead this weekend so you might still be able to stock up on auld washing machine parts.

The clue got confused by the continuing discussion. Oh well, another year!
