Haggis, as willk says you'll need to work it out for your own boat, there isn't much dockside fuel around so probably need to plan for the whole trip. We will only manage that whole loop in perfect conditions, and it's 70 odd NM... Big boat people here usually cruise around 1L/NM but small sibs CAN be twice as efficient as that. You'll want a reserve.

While some are stirring it up in other parts of the forum.. It reminded me about this thread .. so I thought I would do some stirring myself ... and bump it to the top of the pile again.


I for one ... am looking forward to the Scottish SIB outing in a big way..and although I consider myself more of a” rocker” kind of guy ..its thanks to a “mod” that it is going to happen.


The reason the fresh flush of sh*te reminded me of the SIB gathering is because I was in Go Outdoors the other day to have a look at their crap sale .. and low and behold .. I spied the bargain of the year.


Some of you will be relieved to know I will be taking my latest purchase to Belnahua for the wild camping.


Poly..thanks for going to the trouble of organising the trip.. I don’t expect you to wipe my ar*e ...but can I suggest that anyone who thinks you do little but stir the stiff stuff .. gets the treat to empty the pail at the end of the day.


Hey.. It also converts into a handy bucket for bailing the boat and will be used for keeping any fish caught , out of the bilges.



I also think it would be good to add to the “What do you carry on your SIB” thread too. It is of more use in certain emergency situations than a VHF or Life jacket.


Here’s hoping for a calm crossing on the big day.. so the crap doesn’t slop over the top.. soon be SIBing season again ...Yeah

That's one handy bucket Gurnard.
In all seriousness how much was it.
I could think of a multitude of outdoor scenarios where that little commode could be utilised.

Hi Gear Portable Toilet | GO Outdoors

Its back up to £20 squid Kaman..I got mine when it was £10..but its the best way to spend a penny in the wilds..especially if you are a big wummin like me and like sitting reading the paper for the first number two of the day.

If in doubt ..Look at the reviews ..it has 20 ..and everyone has given it 5 stars.. you cant go far wrong on that recomendation unless the lid falls down half way through the task in hand.

I deal for car camping too.. just flush it out in the sea..and its good to go again

That looks the biz too Kerny..especially if you are trying to save a penny while spending one.

However I think the Go Oudoor one is higher specced ?..


It is a 10 gallon bucket rather than a 5 gallon pail. Keeps the big boys happier in the long run.

It also holds an evening worth of firewood ..keeping it dry on the trip out.

It also has a watertight seal on the lid..but Im afraid I wont be trying to see if that claim holds water or not..
