It does indeed:

There are free tools available for conversion to various other formats, for example:

Scott - essentially that is what Boatlaunch is - i've PM'd geoff who runs it - seems daft to reinvent the wheel.

Really good idea to get another 'item' in the slipway information, on boatlaunch, about the nearest garage. Personally I use that site a lot when going new places.....Beats taking up room with extra tanks

p.s. the Ullapool one is right by the slipway too...

As I've just mentioned Boatlaunch in a post about 10 mins ago, maybe everyone should take a pic of the next few slipways they use and get them uploaded.

Yeap, i know boatlaunch is Google based, but the thread was talking about excel lists etc, so it was worth mentioning that "we" could do it ourself if one chooses.....but least hassle is boatlaunch.

On side note: if anybody needs petrol at Elie on the Firth of Forth, let me know in advance and we sort you out. Petrol stations in Fife are thin on ground, esp. in East Neuk.

Nearest petrol station is miles away!
