Clyde trip - yes, just need to sort out safe launching - Largs is a bit far, and the Esso pump at Port Glasgow wont reach the RIB.
lol i know what you mean there is now a tesco further along the road which is much easier to use and last time we were there the petrol was cheaper and the breakfast we had in the cafe set us up for the day
Must do something of that ilk too. So anything from Oban let me know (They have Petrol there dontchaknow!)
We sailed up to Oban last year in our Hardy Pilot from Dunoon. Great run but the refuel at Oban was a pain. Had to lug 5 jerry cans on a sack trolley up onto the pier then all the way to Tesco and back - no doubt youll tell me there is a petrol station closer. This year any trips we do from oban we will trail the boat up as it took best part of a week to get through the Crinan canal and back which left us little time to explore around mull etc.
Would love to get out to Staffa has been an ambition of mine for years so fingers crossed for this summer.
Our boat is now broken in and booked for first service, awaiting new prop and eager to get out as much as poss this summer. Look forward to seeing how this thread develops.
Must be getting pretty excited Bruce i know we were when waiting for our boat to be ready.
