You're right, Dave. We've had 2 "once in 40 years" storms in January and last May therefore it will obviously be 79 years until the next. Wish I'd thought of that before having my mooring fettled - what a waste of money!

See you in Linnhe Marine

I shall look forward to it. No doubt you can explain your hypothesis that if the world was turned upside down, Dallens Bay would be a crap anchorage, over a glass of whisky? It may make more sense that way. :-)

Rhu Marina has had boats wrecked in gales regularly since the year it opened. Beats me why anyone ever leaves a boat there,

Sorry, I can't quite get the hang of selective quoting.

We would be delighted Ken to share some of our Glenfiddich at Dallens Bay..... :D
