Winter??? We don't have winter up here...just a cooler extended summer !!

Due to the weather planner arranging the summer "good" weather during my work days (both of them)....indeed looking forward to those crisp days when the water is like glass !! It makes the Black Bull in Rothesays coffee taste even better! Don't know if the Royal at Tighnabruiach is taking in its handy wee platform for the winter, quite scenic up there on such a day! Re mention of Loch Striven.....now thats an eerie place!!

Craig - yeah thats the same problem, seemed to be getting worse as the season went on, just not got round to doing anything about it yet. Will try and have a look over the next few weeks.

Tornado - Striven is only eerie when were not there...

Just taken delivery of my brand new 7.5 Tornado , berthed at Largs, so I'll certainly be out and about this Winter (that and occasional appearances at the helm of certain large orange Humbers!).

Unfortunately the "sinking pontoon" at the Royal Hotel in Tighnabruich is already conspicuous by it's absence - time to dust off the old tender!

think it will be the impellor. cheap if ure handy with the tools. (hammers!!!)
I'll be able to do it after the autumn series is finished at kip and largs which will be in 3 weeks so it will be really cold then!!!! Have to scare the penguins off the bow

Was thinking it was the impellor, but I had already replaced that at the start of the season before the problem started happening!

Forth this Sunday???

The long range forecast for Sunday currently looks reasonable (dry, light winds) for the Forth on Sunday. Probably the last chance I'll get before chrimbo now! Am planning on a hangover so not an early start and no nav lights so it won't be a long day (sunset 3.39pm) - but enough for a blast - if you are likely to be around...

NEIL
