Online in Balamory

Postby sahona » Tue May 26, 2009 4:06 pm

Didn't realise you get free wireless internet connection in tobermory.
Met LJS here, may see him later further up the coast.
Weather a bit pish, except for last Friday - Crinan to L.Spelve, a day to remember, ab-fab, sunshine and a gentlemans wind between 10 and 24 kn.
Calor gas, 4.5kg, is £14 at the garage and over £19 at the hardware store. Going a walk up the hill to check prices there!
Moidart tomorrow (or the next day if SWMBO doesn't like the weather)
May be gone some time....until next free connection!

Haven't bought gas yet this year - can't find receipt from last year - £19 is certainly OTT, but £14 might not be too far off.

Looking forward to report and pics of the cruise.

Hope the [whisper] drivetrain [/whisper] is behaving.

Last weekend I bought a 4.5kg calor at Kip Marina Chadlery and it was £13.50.

While as usual complaining about the price David was saying that the Camping Gaz £19 something and works out 3 times more expensive than Calor as there is so much less in the bottle.

I thought Camping Gaz fixed the price so it was the same where ever you went?
