Lovely animation. How did you do that?

Thanks Alcyone
The animation was just a wee experiment with Adobe Imageready.
Haven't got round to doing anymore yet but I will do soon.

Is it an animated gif? I don't have imageready, but it's a great idea. I have thought of some animations I'd like to do on my blog.

I got my 14 year old soon to "acquire" Image Ready & Photoshop.
Seems to be a handy piece of software - keeps me amused while I am away.

Bare-faced plagiarism I'm afraid, possibly someone's signature in another place.

I saw where you are berthed when we visited Dunstaffnage recently, It is a official duty to have a nosey...(something along the lines "I know where you live.." :twisted: )

Have you considered ferry gliding into the berth stern first. Two things - makes coming out much easier, and also means facing the prevailing wind.

just a thought.

Yes, I have considered it but a little chicken to try it without an experienced "helping hand" at the ready. I do have someone who has offered to spend some time onboard to go through various manouvres, so hopefully that will go someway toward solving my problem.
Thanks for the input.
