FWIW I am toying with a Dunstaffnage launch sometime Friday afternoon, plan being to motor down under the Atlantic bridge then pitch the tent & see where the evening goes.


Have still to do a half decent fuel reckoner to see if my tank capacity can manage that, but it's Plan A for the moment.

(Plan B is tow to Easdale & chuck it in there)

Ralph wx dependent like everyone. Have got jetties if do fill up at Oban then again at PA or CH if needed. But launching at E would save you fuel and you would be at HQ.

My theory goes:
Dunstaff - Easdale = 13.6 NM - call it 30 in round numbers at 0.8l/m in today's prices
Covering that distance on the trailer at around 18 to the gallon (measured on hilly territory!) = 20
now, for a tenner, would you rather be towing a boat through Oban or motoring down Kerrera Sound?
OK, I'll have an 18 lunch / recover fee to add, but that does at least allow me to drive home having had a shower & flushed my engine etc.

But all in, the extra 28 seems like cash well spent from where I'm sitting!




BTW R U on TXT?

OK, fess up time. I wasn't there last year. Rather unfortunate incident on the Friday. Long story....

PS, wee grovel. Anyone got a Merc 14 or 15" (x 10.25-ish dia) 13 spline "pin tabwasher locking" prop they could bring along & I could borrow for 10-15 mins?

(...I may of course find my new leisure battery solves the over revving problem nicely with it's extra weight! )
This will be the stealth rib!!! Lol

Too right..... A whole 80 miles round the Clyde in December, probably no more than 20 miles apart at any given moment & I couldn't find you.....

If you are planning on coming under the Bridge over The Atlantic you might be a bit short on depth where you enter the sound at the north end (well before you get to the bridge) as it is neap tides, depends what time you would be planning on coming through.

10 days to go - getting organised

Hello and thank you all for registering for this year's Easdale RIB Rendezvous! After last year's brilliant turnout and weather I suppose it shouldn’t be surprise to anyone that we have now a record number of RIBs registered promising ERR 2013 to be the biggest and best event we’ve ever had! Registrations stand at over 50. We now await sunshine and calm seas

When you arrive on Friday 3rd May your first point of call should be The Seafari Ticket Office. Seafari crew will be ready and waiting to help you register and launch your boat from 2pm. For those of you who were unsure with the tick boxes to confirm that you are responsible for the seaworthiness of your boat and the safety of its occupants, this can be resolved at registration. We wish to confirm Seafari only offers an umbrella organisation. All decisions fall to the RIB's skipper. Once launched there is time to take a quick shake down cruise around a couple of the local islands or get settled into your accommodation. Friday evening we will either be at The Oyster Bar (01852 300121) or The Puffer over on Easdale Island (01852 300022), both serve food between 1800-2100. Booking is essential.

On Saturday the plan is to depart at 0930 - 1000 for our jaunt to Jura. The plan for many is to complete a circumnavigation but with the options to take up the navigational challenges of Loch Tarbert, explore the coast of Islay or to enjoy the attraction of the fine coffee shops, hotels or whisky distilleries along the way. The circumnavigation is about 100 miles so bring plenty of fuel. More information about Loch Tarbert is available on the web site.Powerboat and RIB Magazine should now be published with the appropriate article.

Saturday evening, Keren and the rest of the team at The Puffer on Easdale Island are, as always, pulling out the stops for us with a mouth watering set menu at just 12 a head
Menu options -
Main course: Argyll Hill Lamb Rogan Josh served with rice; Homemade Beef Stovies served with bread & butter or Homemade macaroni cheese served with garlic bread.
To follow: Homemade chocolate brownie with cream or Homemade sticky toffee pudding with custard.
(seconds available at an appropriate price till the pots are empty)
Booking this meal is essential to ensure quantities provided are correct. Phone before Thursday 2nd May.
Puffer booking number:01852 300022

Sunday's plan is to have a landing trip to Belnahua the most remote of the recognised slate quarrying islands with its historic architecture and tools with the option to navigate around some of the other local islands. Tobermory, Oban, Crinan also spring to mind..

We will offer our opinions on the weather in the middle if next week

The Easdale RIB Rendezvous Team
