I'd be up for that, got a few mates with ribs who'd probably be keen too.

Good stuff, I was trying to think of possible places to go.

If people have a small tender wreck bay in the kyles can be good.

Otter ferry has a nice pontoon for ribs but I imagine they won't want 5 boats rocking up and just having a BBQ on their beach!

Any other suggestions?

True, but if it's p-ing down a bar & some pub food might be a good option.....

No idea where people are launching / moored, but what about a day trip to the Fyne Brewery? Only real down side is the RSPB might complain as you wake the sparrows on the way out - It's a 120 odd nautical mile round trip from Largs and probably a 3 hr run each way @20 knots....

Plenty of places round Arran, although a dinghy might be useful? Not checked the tides but are there not a few beaches in Loch Gilp & up the shores of Loch Long? Top of Loch Goil has a sandy beach and a visitor's pontoon to prevent a long wait!

I'll happily run with whatever the majority wants, as I still don't know if I'm free or not!

Craig, why not millport, you can use the pontoons at the training centre free. Barby on the beach.

Are you talking about the Place 200 yds from the ferry terminal, or is there somewhere new in Millport? (not been there for about a year)

Anyone launching from Largs won't get their engine up to working temp if it's the first one!

You're not kidding - you could do it by aux from the marina!



All joking aside, as I said I will roll with what the massive decide as I still don't know if I can escape that day. I may however change my slippage plans!
