Passage east of Seil Island

For those concerned about the passage east of Seil link shows
here is the Oban lifeboat passing underneath on its way back to Oban - local knowledge helps

Also B&B address on Seil next to the pub

Just some info for those coming a good distance. The nearest petrol stations are at Lochgilphead and Oban. 16 and 23 miles away, so bring plenty with you. Unless, of course, you follow the lifeboat's example and go under the 'Bridge over the Atlantic', in which case you may be able to fill up at the Tigh and Truish - with petrol too.

Things are looking good for me too, nearly finished the minor refit and recommission.
Hopefully get the last bits of greasing and servicing finished tomorrow and test round Oban Bay Wednesday evening.

Weather's looking good for the weekend. Just serviced my engine and got it running. Need to antifoul, get some new fuel and launch. If nothing untoward happens and the forecast's right, I'll be at the Gulf on Saturday.

Have we got a rendezvous point and time? (Understand that NO-ONE is organising anything and if someone suggests a time and place they are NOT responsible for causing a big crash)

Have been watching this thread, but sad to say I'm not gonna make this one due to my coming home from Wester Ross this weekend. Which is a shame cos I kinda promised myself exactly this trip this year up through Crinan. Maybe another time. You guys have a great time and post plenty of piccies when you get back
