As high as that?????

We'd be up for joining you ....as soon as I can persuade the trailer to be a touch more roadworthy...... Puncture last week I now have a flat wheel (and I do mean wheel!!) so no spare. This weekend might be pushing it as I'm away with work at the moment!

Clyde or Oban are roughly equidistant (tow time) for us, so either could be good..... In the menatime, anyone know of any non internetted outboard breakers in the Aberdeen area that might have an old 15" prop kicking about?

Hi Guys

Well 2 weeks ribbing and 850Nm

The 1st weekend 5th/6th - was the one where it snowed down south. Saturday North Channel was N7 gusting 8, Sunday was N8 gusting 9.
we seemed to be the only boat out!
Boat collected,trial on Friday handover/launch Saturday 5th at 14.00 into a near gale!
Knowing Sundays forecast was worse still we thought we should get into the clyde pdq.
We had several name choices for the boat, one was 'Born in a Storm' which would have been spot on. just trhought a 4 word name a lttle too complicated over vhf!
Took 5 hours to get to Largs, North Channel OK just huge waves (but well spaced) running up east of Aran was particularly hard work.
Sunday at 9am was really blowing we felt we had to go south as North was looking like hard work again. went down between the Cumbraes and round Bute (clockwise) some good shelter up here. Sunshine soon warmed the cabin. Chill factor today was said to be -5 degrees! Stopped at Holy Loch - superb B&B overlooking Entrance to Clyde, Loch Long and Holy Loch.
Monday Ice on pontoon - retraced steps around Bute (anti clockwise) and entered lower loch Fyne, lunch at Ardrishaig (Inner end of Crinan Canal).
Brewed hot drinks, short kip and then down to Cabletown. Fantastic sunny -all the scenery we did'nt get last August!.
Tuesday - again heavy frost no wind perfect dawn, the stillest smoothest sunnyest rounding of M of K on way back to Redbay.

Then Wednesday 9th 14.00 depart from Redbay for Southampton.
will add notes on this trip seperately.

Craig
saw your boat - why still out of the water?
will post some images of 'Storm Breaker'

cheers 4 now
Paul

incorrect view!

Doug
What I should have said is that unless my son goes on your ribbing trip he will not be on the balcony as shown!
