Now thats what I call 'flat calm'

Spent a few days in Scotland last week helping a friend with his new boat - OK its not a rib

Couldn't believe how calm the sea was one day - it was glassy! Never seen that in the Solent. And the depth! well over 500 feet in places - again very different from the Solent - or Channel for that matter.

Clegs... as in horse flies? No, but some unwelcome encounters with giant midges - one evening was like walking out into a snow storm - except the snow bit!

No we get them here in the Pennines as well so I'm immune, well to the English ones at least. not sure about the Midlands though the scars might be everlasting on there skin fook me he might come back home like he has caught smallpox and that's not including the S.A.B.S. (Scottish Division) trained midges.
