Port and Marina VHF Channel Numbers

I have compiled a list of all VHF Channel numbers used by all ports, harbours, marinas, locks and bridges in the UK.
It is in Excel format.
If anyone would like a copy (I keep a copy, laminated, on my boat when cruising) please e-mail me.
If you would like to put it up on your website as a useful bit of information.....? No problem.

I am now working on a list of all those on the island of Ireland.

(P.S. Reminder to self. I must get out more.......)

Thanks to you all for your encouragement.

Being a sad git, I have now decided that I want to create something that would certainly benefit me (and I hope a lot of others) when planning a cruise.
If you want to go from A to B, stay overnight and then go on to C etc. it is really usefull to know what marinas are options for your journey. So....... what we will do is to create a list of all marinas, by area, working sequentially round the country. A "marina" will be self-selecting i.e. if it calls itself a marina, so will I. I will not attempt to list its facilities, instead I will put its web-page address in column 2 (if it has one). If it doesn't have one, at least you know that marina exists and you can research the data yourself.
If anyone has any data, website addresses or spots any errors or omissions PLEASE tell me, not John !!
One final word, I have been getting terrible stick from my wife Christine, who has spent hours doing the actual typing-in of data, while I, of course, lounge at my ease on the sofa with a large G&T and call out the necessary facts and figures for her to key-in.

I mention this, of course, because if you spot any typos, they are hers not mine!

Well done Brian.

I'll bet the harbour master at Scrabster is still fuming after we left without asking his permission...still next time there will be no excuse.

Waterproof paper

Brian
Excelent bit of work.

For all those who have down loaded the list, you may be interested in Xerox Xeroperm laser paper.
Part No. 3R 96094. It is plastic paper(?) like I.O.M banknote paper or the stuff used for wet note pads. It works with b&w and colour lasers and is double sided.
Win loads of drinks by challenging people to tear it. Soak it in water, stand on it, leave it in the sun for years on end and it will be good as new. It will burn, and that is the only thing that will get rid of it.
I got my supply via a friend, and don't know of a supplier (useful eh) but I will have a look around and post if anyone interested.
