JAHNO - I do requests all the time. I always have to do what 'The Boss' tells me.

Having got the bit between my teeth. I've added the oars and rowlocks now.....

Remember this thread?

Well I've been surfing the 'net this afternoon and came across this site about the tides in the Pentland Firth

Check this out:

http://www.caithness.org/pentlandfirth2/ click on the TIDES page.

Now I'm starting to think again......!

Well who would have thought that the original posting on the 20th January 2002 would have lead to a circumnavigation of the UK AND a trip across the Pentland Firth in my SIB?

It is also interesting to see that two of the people who originaly encouraged me ended up accompanying me on the trip - Brian Elliott and JK himself. Of course in those days I didn't realise that JK was a REAL person.

The SIB was fitted out with the compass and gps,as in the diagram, but the fuel tank was strapped in at the front to distrubute the weight more evenly.

So it just goes to show, be carefull if you suggest something on RIBNET!

Yes, and I supplied the bracket that held Garmin in place. Without this bit of kit the entire trip would not have been feasible....
