Easdale has been a windy place these last few weeks - you may have seen some of the storms in Glasgow etc on the TV. Easdale Harbour has been fine thankfully, we have a boat on the water!
Some responses to questions raised
Fuel and length of trips. If you opt on a sunny day to go around Mull its about 100 miles. Say 50 miles max on day 2 although many stay closer to home. Its a bit of a balancing act.

Dougcrock - happy to meet up/join in. If you are passing Easdale during your stay call into the harbour. Island side best VHF Ch 77 Seafari or ask ferryman. Need info just e mail.

Accommodation booked - we're coming. Looking forward to it.

I'm putting it in my diary!

As a fairly inexperienced RIB skipper, but a sailor who knows the waters around Mull quite well, I'm hoping to borrow my older son's new RibCraft 5M. with 90hp Yamaha 2 stroke. Boat has still to have engine and steering fitted, but expect to be on water in mid-April at Melfort so will try to visit if weather OK. Will try to get younger son along as crew.
You looked after them both in their schooldays, so I trust you to organise a safe and exciting trip round Mull - or wherever the weather dictates!
But I will be in touch.
Best regards,

I have confirmed I'm free that weekend, so will see you there.

As a high level thought to save clogging the wee roads round Easdale with trailers, anyone fancy launching at Dunstaffnage or Linnhe Marine & motoring down on the Friday afternoon / evening?

I doubt I could do Sunday as well, so a wee cruise in company after the BBQ is also a possibility.

I now have a deadline to fit my new toy!

If memory serves, the passage was planned at 77Nm. We ran up to the mull and ducked behind Gigha. It was fairly choppy with a beam on sea for a good bit, which slowed us down. A good afternoon's cruise!
