considering its only 2 weeks away its distinctly lacking in information - like where they are planning on leaving from (the clyde is a big place) and likely to visit...

Yoker hasn't improved much since then
There is more parking on the other side and I would be slightly (only slightly) more relaxed about leaving the car and trailer on that side.
Wouldn't you know it though, I am in Orkney when folk are visiting the area......
Didny they read the earlier parts of this thread? YEELL GET CHIBBED !

I'm still here - just that life and I are having disagreements on priorities

However, things are sort of coming together (cross fingers, turn round 3 times and spit). Tuesday - wee jaunt from Lamlash down to the south end of Arran in the murk. I had to wear the Gecko to stop my eyes hurting (I was lasered about 6 weeks ago - not for vanity reasons, I assure you); it must have worked 'cos I didn't mince the kayakers off Pladda

Wednesday - over to Largs at lunchtime, Mrs. G. found a nice surveyor (hello Paul!), got the VHF fixed (corroded power lead - ta young James @ DDZ), refuelled (that smarted) then home for tea and book-keeping

2215, back on the water leaving Lamlash for a trundle around Arran spotting the lighthouses (hey, if it's good for royalty...), back on the mooring at 0115. Away to Scotland c/o CalMac on the 0820, back on the 1230. I think I've spent more time on the water than on land in the last week - bits of me are still wobbly (NO! NO! NO! not those bits ).

Anyway, Mrs. Grocer fancies a jaunt round the Kyles in the dark (she says the scenery's better at night). Who's up for it next week? Tuesday's good for us - the Met is looking good for most of the week.

We've got some spare seats if anyone is prepared to rough it/take their chances - all donations gratefully received (bring a scrubbing brush...)
