We went out early not knowing it was cancelled, we had a great run up the river to Renfrew, got there for 13:15, pottered about for a while then headed further up river and abandoned it before we got to govan as there was that much crap floating around, got back to Great harbour by around 15:00 after having a couple of detours to have a nosey at stuff, water was like glass

It wasn't actually cancelled but fizzled out as nobody actually turned up or decided not to come at the last minute, ourselves included.
I was expecting the crap in the water, the reason for the LW trip when dark and why I wasn't keen to leave earlier in the day.
It seems the weather report for fog was also correct as my mother has just called me and said she can't see the end of the street in Renfrew anymore.
I have a promised trip out to Inverie before Xmas for dinner for the wife and visiting Millport Xmas day by RIB for dinner so can't see time or money allowing a repeat this side of the new year.

We were really disappointed to have to pull out, but for once sense over-ruled things!

We need to get permanent nav lights set up, and are not overly keen on a long night trip which depends on them.

Any advise on where locally to get an A-frame, or any small metal works that could make one, would be appreciated.

Will be out playing with our dolphin friend off Cumbrae tomorrow if anyone else is around.

Meercat in kilbirnie are good http://www.meercat-exhausts.com/

thats where we (or should I say my brother) got ours done (mastheadlight too low), you get what you ask for........My brother forgot that the mastheadlight should be higher up, I was in Africa, but even than my brother will never listen to me, just cos hes older!!!!





Wully is very good at what he does, and you get what you pay for (top notch)

HI, all really sorry we couldn’t attend. My Dad who suffers from Parkinson’s had a bad day yesterday so had to give Mum some Help looking after him. Honestly I’d have much rather been out in the cold surrounded by ‘crud’ of the wooden floating variety. So my apologise for no show


‘Any advise on where locally to get an A-frame, or any small metal works that could make one, would be appreciated.

Lucky you PINTO there great fun, The other day was the first time I had seen dolphins in the clyde – great fun !!


There is a stainless manufacturer just next door to Yampower in Glasgow – I’m sure a call to Phil regarding best design and location would be a good place to start.


And its still Pac22 (1) Softies (0) HEHE
A good start to the season for you guys but the season is young ………
