In which case I can highly recommend this http://www.yachtingsoftware.com/navi...ftware_c8.aspx

I guess with the weather as it is you're not going to be doing this but just for info, depending on tide and wind the trip from Corran up to Fort William can be really bumpy for a small boat but you can often find calm water on the south side running not too far from the road. A caveat though, there is a reef not too far up the loch from the Corran ferry and it's not marked but you'll find it on your charts. At high water there's no problem.

Thanks, we just drove up to Fort William and it looked bumpy. Leven has been calm for the past half hour, might drop it in and have a short potter about here. My girlfriend hasn't been out on the boat before so dont want to give her a baptism of fire! need her to approve this hobby will make the next boat purchase easier......I'm still waiting for her to ask why I'm reading a manual for the "old" plotter.....lol

You're not going to sell it to her if she's freezing her t1ts off & puking over the side. Keep your powder dry for a day when you can take her for a potter for tea & cake. Softly softly catchee monkey

Ahaha do you know my missus or something? Sounds just up her avenue. Weather held for all over about 10 mins, boats prepped and ready to drop in so will see what happens over next few days. Monday looks semi promising.
