Thanks, S_S_O_L, we could probably meet up for a pint, if we are not pushing to do it in a day., C_W
The idea of a pint whilst attractive initself, was not the basis of the offer. Having done the transit a few times, the addition of a shore party with mountain bike to prepare the next lock and take shore lines ensures a speedy passage however, the Crinan can be frought with unexpected hazards such as drone ships. It is said that it is best to ensure that the helm has "been" should the skipper wish to disembark for a brief period.
The problem I have is mathmatical, I have the followwing equasion to contemplate:-
Mountain Bike = a
Canal tow path = b
succesful transit =c
pint = d
Clyde Wanderer and the inevitable poteen =e
That adds up nicely, and yes I hope to be carrying some of that special alternative fuel (=e) with me, especially intended for just those kind of occasions, even works on the bike.
