NEB Crew - Easter

Possible meet at easter - Marky M is bringing his new tub up for her maiden voyage - depends on weather whether its at NEB or Loch Lomond.

I believe the Red Fox has a week booked - what dates Mark? Do you know if anyone else will be on the site?

If we come down I think it'll be a hotel somewhere close (Portlogan?) - too far to tow two outfits just for a few days - Marky M & missus will be in same situation. This idea is also approved by the better half - we can play silly buggers in the waves while she goes shopping, and someone else does the cooking!

New England Bay near Drummore Dumfires and Galloway, excellent boating and fishing next to a caravan site, well sheltered.

Bill, does the Isle of May in a rib mean anything to you?

Isle of May

JW,

Never had a rib out on the east coast - had a cruise over that way on a friend's rag & stick boat ages ago - but Bass Rock area does look interesting!

Being a weegie born & bred, its foreign to me to think of anything other than the west coast for messing about in boats - even though I now live in Falkirk, and the east coast is actually closer.

Hopefully will get a bit more use out of the rib this year, so ideas for destinations are always welcome - although with her only being a little'un, weather and sea state will play a big part in outings.

Just checking. I went out there many years ago with a guy whose name was Bill. Completely lost track of him now but he used to go to Loch Lomond side in a caravan and he was from the West Lothian or Falkirk area.

Sorry JW, - different guy - one common denominator - the 'many years' bit!
