Polwart, in your research did you find out where the Bothy they were using in the video was? The only one I was aware of on the west side of Jura was Glengarrisdale, but that is painted white. Details of it are on the mountain bothy association website if you are interested.

The video is one of mine so I can help with the bothy location, it is on Jura but I don't want to post the exact place on an open forum, you don't get many free open bothys so close to the shore and beach , If anyone is serious about staying there PM me and I will give you the location, the last bit of the film was the beach An Dunan south of Lowlandmans bay.

Puffin I think I know where it was. Zodiacman would be able to confirm for you. If its where I think, its not an MBA maintained bothy, and its on the West Coast of Jura. I understand why Zodiacman doesn't think it should be published too openly - although in reality you'd have to be pretty determined to get there! It also wouldn't take too much googling of bothies on Jura to find it discussed more openly on walking forums etc!

Billy - will do once a plan is in place. I've got to work out what the best plan is for the boat when sleeping ashore...

(a) anchor it
(b) beach it

I think I'd sleep better with it beached, and it would save the worry about how to get ashore/back to the boat etc. But she's too heavy to drag up the beach out the water or put back in the water when the tide goes out. Not only would that restrict us to certain tide times but if its a bit rough she's going to get battered when not quite afloat/dry. Has anyone used rollers successfully with a small rib? http://shop.trident-uk.com/sailing/p...s-PL44641.html

Or do you think that in this part of the world its feasible/practical to set up a temporary running mooring (I think thats what its called) where the boat is say 50m off shore but the anchor to boat rope/chain length is is only say 10m?

Polwart I have pmed you re the site. Zman used rollers but they were gang handed and I have never used rollers so cant help you there. A slip mjooring is feasable as long as you watch were you drop it especially on the west of Jura!! I used one for my tender, mas mlong as nthe anchor and chain is ok weight wise and you position it as sheltered as poss it should be ok as there is not much windage on your rib. If you were going with someone flinting and rollers maybe the answer for your sleep!!
Cheers
Billy

I think my anchor should be big enough (its bigger than the boat needs) and I'd need to add long shore lines anyway. Both would be 'new' techniques to me so I might need some practice first to see whats feasible. I don't want the West of Jura to be the place that I discover I've not got the technique right - its a long treck to public transport if the boat floats away or I've got it stuck out the water on a spring tide and don't have the muscle to get it back in the water!

Flinting?

For the current plans there will be three of us so physical effort should be not too bad. Three people once just about managed to move it its own length on a sandy beach - with no rollers.
