If it is that then I'll be along for sure.

I've just called the marina and it is sitting waiting to be hooked up.

I'm just refitting the reverse camera to car now, man I missed that!!!

Cripes, just seen this. "use of showers etc."!!!
Blimey, do you think that you could get them to have a word with Lymington Town Council

south queensferry Main Street is shut off for xmas traffic head for the train station and come down the back way if you are launching from the hawes pier I don't know if port Edgar is actually open as I believe it was getting dredged when I spoke to the bloke at blue v he was saying all the boat were to get lifted out of the marina to facillitate this your rout will need to be b907 right onto burgess road right turn onto station road past dalmeny train station left onto Bankhead road then left onto b924 down the hill under the bridge and the slip is on the right

My plan is simple, let John launch first and I'll meet you there!

how long a rope do you have for launching its a pretty shallow pier I made up a rope that was ideal then changed the wheels and axle on the trailer as a result I needed to splice another rope to get the boat in deep enough water to get it off

If it shallow I will have a problem, what other slip options are there?

I don't launch with a rope, never had to.

As long as I can get the rollers wet I can push it off.
