Did a 12 mile run kast week, then went from South Queensferry to Portobello at the weekend to pick a mate up (from the beach!!) which was 15 miles each way and I've still got some fuel left in my 22lt tank.... Once I manage to get my fuel sensor hooked up to my Lowrance plotter I'll be able to get realtime fuel consumption, just waiting on BlueV getting me an NMEA2K extension lead....
Mo piccies of the Clyde, but here's one from the weekend on the Forth.
I thought you lived in glasgow !!!!
I lived in edinburgh in the early 90's. I had a Bombard SIB with 6 HP outboard that I used to buzz the bridges and local islands with.
Actually I only used it a couple of time because the weather was so bad, it was always cold even in summer and then my kids came along. So I decided to take a break. I wouldn't mind bombing around now on my Searider in North and South Queensferry and those old islands.
I do once remember thinking that I had seen a diver all on his own in the Forth so I went over to investigate. only to realise it was a seal. That was cool. I also remember landing on one of the old Fort islands, going for an explore then coming back to the boat and finding that the tide had disapeared. Then I was glad it was only a small SIB.
