Bruce, there is likewise no real security on the tall ship pontoon. I could in theory pay entry to the ship and relatively easily pass through the ship, onto the pontoon and help myself especially if speedy's guys were all involved in class room work at the time. In theory the tall ship staff might ask questions? but then the same is true of most harbours/marinas.

Thats true and I was aware of that but at least it is not open to anyone walking past and we would be on the ship.
It is unlikely that anyone would pay and get through the ship just to try and get on a RIB.
I would like to clarify who can give us use though as my conversation yesterday was pretty cut and dried with the ship manager.
The SECC one is really in non mans land as far as getting a bite is concerned. The only other alternative would be investigate the Braehead pontoon but I'll need to track down the owner.
My preference is to use the tall ship, we get a city centre tie up, tour round the boat and somewhere for a coffee and bun, and its relatively secure being off the side of the ship as I understand it away from the quayside.
I suppose I am spoiled now being able to tootle up to places and just tie up the boat and go for a wander without worrying about whether it will be there when I return

My wifes coming and will be driving at least part of the way. She is a good driver at long as you point out the various things she can hit like big rocks, Scotland, Ireland, harbours, other boats etc etc
Seriously though come along, even if you are not blonde............

Honestly, she has heard it all. With me she really does need to have a good sense of humour
Believe it or not she says just as much about me to my face, if you can't laugh about then whats the point?
I have to keep my gob shut all week with 200 nurses and doctors talking bollox most of the time, I need to have a laugh now and again.....................

Ok .. I'll give her some moral support then .. but you still pay the premiums if she hits anything
