If it makes you feel any better, your story sounds a lot like the prequel to my rigging a Merc where once there sat a Yam!

All being well I should be up & running in time. (Granted, I did say that before the last Clyde upriver trip...)

O/T, anybody out?...

Anyone out on the water Tomorrow (Friday 14th Nov) ?

Were out from Largs Yacht Haven 11.00am (ish) doing a LII Coastal endorsment.
Probably take a run to Millport for a bite to eat.
A Run to the north end of G.Cumbrae and, if weather forecast is right, bring lunch back up again lol

How are you getting on with this? Any joy getting her started up?
I am in Glasgow this week coming and will sort out the pitstop then produce the plan for the end of the month.
The weather has been dire up here with high winds and horizontal rain for the last few weeks, it can't last for ever..............

Well the flotsam shouldn't be such a problem if it continues.
Fingers crossed it dries up again soon and petrol gets cheaper

So far so good. Got the wiring plumbed in, and now just need to reattatch battery cables which I had to snip the eyes off to get them and the fatter Merc remote loom back through the copex. That should be done tonight, will check it all goes (& more importantly stops when the deadman is pulled!) on muffs tomorrow, then a sea trial Sun afternoon, probably out of Largs. (Can you tell I looked at the forecast? )

Renfrew Ferry Launch

Had a look at the South side slipway on Sunday - appeared fine for a launch on the 29th.
(You still up for joining me there, Polwart? )
Unfortunately, no one available to ask about actual technicalities of launching/sharing slipway with ferry etc. Also gates were locked (pos because it was Sunday. . .)

So - couple of questions before I 'phone SPT tomorrow:

1) Anyone with experience of launching on Renfrew/South slipway (as opposed to Yoker side)?
2) How was it coping with the above in midst of ferry operations?

Many thanks,
T'bob.

Assuming I get my lights fitted this weekend.

No idea about south side launch... might be worth pm'ing speedy - he had suggested north side previously.
