please see this post

http://rib.net/forum/announcement.php?f=&a=2

AS previosly noted I am not organising a trip.

I am merely using Rib.net as one would a phone to let people know of my plans. Any / all who decide to come along on the day do so entirely at their own risk and must bear responsibility for themselves and their crews themselves.

Hmmmmmm - Yes, i thot that too.

Need to get some stuff sorted - accomo, distance from pub etc.

Who is staying where? i think Ardfern looks best - Craobh Haven (?) looked a bit windswept last time i was there.

Intending to tow up Saturday am, get some ribbin in and stay overnight with reserve ribbin time on Sundy.

howzabout that then?

Lets get this party started - albeit "it is not an organised outing"

Kado nearing completion

Kado is nearing completion and the engine was delivered during the week.

I had heard very good reports regarding hospitality in Craobh nd with that in mind met up with Jim Berry, the marina manager @ dublin boat show.


I am still on for my orignal plan to leave Cushendall @12 midday on the saturday

I have had the Corryvreckan on my list of dives to do for so long, it is possible on the right tide and weather conditions, but these are rare.
I have been through it many a time in my 5.3m RIB, its a bit strange but not dangerous except in certain weather conditions.
If I get the boat built back up again and tested before April I may come down and join in for a laugh, is only 20miles from here!

Anybody I know that has tried this grounded at least once on the trip through, knowing what it looks like at low water I wouldn't attempt it without some "brave" pills.......

Agreed. There's easier ways to get to the Tigh an Truish. I keep thinking I ought to try the passage from the south but so far chickened out. Perhaps when I've saved up enough for a plotter, though GPS is probably not accurate enough to do the passage at speed anyway.

Corryvreckan DVD

Hi guys

I have just got the Corryvreckan DVD and it is super. A definite must as part of the preparation.

It has a lot of tips about local navigation.

I have a plotter but still wouldn't try it, these inshore non navigable parts of the coast are not particularly well charted to the level of detail that I would rely on what the screen is showing.
I realise larger boats are driving up but for the small boats is there a single place everyone is launching from or meeting up?

Launch site

Blue Ribbin will most likely launch from Craobh around midday, stay over Saturday nite - home Sunday late on.

Single handed, at the moment.

Hope most "tow-ers" will be doin the same.

Whats the latest eta's on those ribbin all the way?

Did anybody get launching fees for Craobh, I normally use the slips in the area where I know someone (ie free) but if its not too expensive I might launch at Craobh to be sociable...........

IIRC they charge per m. Something like £2/m. Can't remember if that is each way or in and out.

Hmm, either £12 or £24. methinks I'll launch elsewhere and run into join up. I know of two launch sites within a couple of miles.
S'funny now thinking about it, in four years of RIB use up and down the west coast up as far as Cape Wrath I've never had to pay to launch the boat.
