How long you planning on leaving it? Based on the normal "MacWeather" you could end up coming back to a nice floating paddling pool anyway! (and then have to lug a flat battery round all day, which could become properly gubbed after a few of those kind of events).
I will be visiting and using it as much as possible - am not paying for PE fees for not using it. but want to make sure I can use thing if real bad weather before basically back up.

Do they do dry storage like Largs? Then its just a case of remembering to take the bung out?
