careful Dan, take a chill pill mate, the rib for you is just round the corner, hang on in there n it'll just pop up when you're least expecting it!! av a word with Tony (Barrowboy), he seems to be able to track down nice ribs 👍

Great write-up Chris accompanied with some excellent pics, although pics of wildlife never seem to be able to do justice to the actual experience of seeing it with your own eyes...

The weather gods have certainly shined on us this year and on me particularly, especially over the last month which was simply outstanding for our Scotland trip. I hope we manage to find a couple more good weekends before the winter refurb work commences.

Dan, as Chris says, hang in there mate; the time for bargains is upon us!

Steve, best of luck with the imminent event. I'm in Chris's boat however; oldest is now 31. Shite still happens but when they're that age but thankfully not quite so frequently and it does't smell quite so offensive...

Bit of a side step, but I fancy a run to ty coch soon, some time in the next month or so once things have settled down.

Just wanted to ask the advice of the regulars - I take it there is nothing fixed to moor upto - so just a case of dropping anchor and keep pushing boat out into deeper water / pulling it in? Any local hazards to be aware of?

Heh, s'alright Chris I think I've calmed down now. Those Ribquests are VERY nice, but it's a awful lot of brass. Will just keep an eye out for now. Tony had an easier time cos he doesn't have the towing limit problems I do!

Could have done without the selfie though, to be honest!
