Impossible, I'd be needing such a large hole in order to be able to fit the recommended plug, the boat wid sink too quickly before I'd applied the appendage :lol: :lol:

Pisser (as they say) if you're female.

Yes. I think if you find a hole, best to head for the Crinan so you can deploy this handy, effective technique.

I've realised a potential snag. In some parts of the world, there's a tiny fish that has a habit of swimming up what can only be described as "yer jap's eye" and causes all sorts of internal mayhem. Don't know if they have it in Stornoway, but if so, it could be pooo-er, very pooo-er.

Believe it's a freshwater fish, so Stornoway should be safe enough.

I suspect you are thinking of the Amazonian Candiru, but its fabled behaviour is probably mythical.
