Dunno Boss - Poly turned up at Scottish SIB meet in a hard boat and he was only moderately teased. As soon as he starts dishing up hot tea and muffins from the galley he'll be highly respected!

Yep looking forward to it.

Fingers crossed for some good weather. 😳😊

Keeping boats at Easdale is not a problem.

Eilean Eisdeal the local community trust that owns the harbour encourages boat users. All fees go to improving the harbour. Easdale harbour is really sheltered. We have had 2 boats on the water throughout the winter. Neither Gertrude nor Henry posed any concerns. The current harbour projects are additional pontoons and to renovate the boat shed to house the community tractor, an old grey Fergie.

Carolyn will sort everything when she eventually returns from Cambodia. She is currently struggling in 40 degrees heat.

Hopefully Pam and I will be up again for this one.
If all goes to plan and the weather doesn't look too bad I'm hoping to bring Baby Blue (4.7 Searider) up and tow it behind our new toy - But I've a bit of work to do to get the accommodation ready!

Hopefully you get it completed. Having a deadline is a good thing as it drives you. Wouldn't be the same without you.

Hmm - if I spend as much time as I think it will need in the garage getting the boat and van ready .... I probably will be coming up on my own!

IIRC it is a stony area that the grass grew over (aka an Argyll field).

Facilities = a picnic table and bugger all else
