Tender? Hovercraft would probably be more useful at low tide!

Cheers for the heads up - your are confirming my thoughts that I reckon that one might be best visited with the boat on the trialer en route to somewhere west coast.....

OK, that could work. Not sure where in the Kyles Perroboy is, but I guess that is a good central spot (anyone from Kip?) and could then meander through the kyles, pick PB up on the way past, and either do a lap of Arran or "turn right" & aim for the Otter.

Okay, in the absense of any more people, here is the plan....

Largs seems to have a deal on for overnight berthing, so I will chuck the boat in on Sat evening, allowing a reasonably sharp exit Sunday morn.

So, If I aim for 8.45 departure, I guess that would be 9-ish at Mountstewart. So, AMac, does that suit you? (If you want a longer lie I could kill some time in Striven, & if my departure goes pear shaped, there is always the pontoon in Rothsay to give you a bit of shelter.) Then up the East Kyle, meet PB at Tighnabruach & can decide where the day takes us from there?

I guess "from there" will depend on wind, rain etc.

My MMSI is in the list, & the radio is on "auto answer" for position requests. I usually keep 77 on dual when on the Clyde. Might be worth swapping mobiles in a PM for the prequel / in case VHFs aren't in distance?

If yopu can't make it, let me know. Short of a hurricane, I'm going (any chance , but I;d rather not wait around. PM or a post here - I'll check the Ribnet app before I leave the marina.

Anyone else wants to come along, you know where to find us......

I am still up for it weather permitting!!!What sort of fuel capacity will we need.I can carry 70 litres. Any more would involve a bit of a faff on Saturday strapping down another tank. 70l would probably do for Otter but not for a circumnavigation of Arran!!!As discussed Portavadie has fuel Tarbert does not any more!!! I have no info about Arran.
