Isle of Bute in April

I'm back over to Bute for the 2nd week in April if anyone's around give me a shout. Will be at port bannatyne marina. Thinking of heading up the Clyde into glasgow for the experience, has anyone done it. I am assuming that it is allowed or will the port authority take my name and trousers down!

I forgot about the local wildlife firing airguns and dropping old TV's on you! I also forgot about the seaplane so it could be chaos!
Its my old home town and even though I have gone up and down a few times from the Yorkhill dock with the navy, I was always down below in the machinery spaces so never saw the sights.
I didn't realise Ralph had done the trip so I will await his advice. I read somewhere that to sail up you required permission from the CPA so not sure if that meant under sail or any small craft.

I dont think we bothered last time and there was 8 or 9 of us (boats) .. Bruce B the Grocer, Dougrock. to name a few others .. but it was an excellent trip and well worth it .. we stopped at the pontoon at the back of the Braehead shopping centre and went in there for lunch I think if you ventured up the cart .. you may be more liable for target practice, .. we did and never had any problem, although Doug has not been without incident.. the main river is fine.

We went right up to the bridge at Jamaica Street, and theres a wier just after that anyway .

I forgot about the pontoon at Breahead but the boss might want to shop so I will distract her as we go past. It's just a wee trip to say I've done it. Was there much debris coming down the river or is it pretty clear.

Mind you looking at the snow outside, will I ever get the massive back in the water?

Only ever planned it. The first one was the trip I discovered my Yam powerhead had turned to shortbread.

I have a set of verified waypoints if you are interested. Probably more use for sped-time than anything else, but do show all the "escape ladders". pontoons not shown as I haven't had a chance to work out what is & isn't usable yet.

If you think it might be of use & you can get gpx files into your satnav, let me know & I.ll post it when I get back to a real computer.
