Hopefullly.

Craig - hopefully we will be going out in our motorised bath-tub on the west over the winter. Its only "ickle" so wont be huge trips and probably only on the nicer days! No definite plans yet though.

I think MDT on this fprum was also interested in going over the west coast some time...

Cheers,

Neil

We need to keep this thread going, i'd be up for it given the right conditions.

Bit late now, but i really fancy a flottila over to/around Ailsa Craig, it'd only take 1/2 an hour (or Less) from Girvan or thereabouts.(the tow vehicles lighter on the go-juice than the RIB!)

With the weather just now its gota be like glass out there.

Will be watchin for new posts on this and will join in if the oportunity(?) presents.

There are defo a lot of RIBs on the Clyde but not many on this forum.

Beats the "pants" off the Solent, as many of them have said themselves when they've been up. (go on Garfish have a go at that - I wont read it )

Anybody got any rough ideas in mind. I know that a few of the boys in kip have taken their boats out for the winter but they are welcome to come with me

Winter??? We don't have winter up here...just a cooler extended summer !!

Due to the weather planner arranging the summer "good" weather during my work days (both of them)....indeed looking forward to those crisp days when the water is like glass !! It makes the Black Bull in Rothesays coffee taste even better! Don't know if the Royal at Tighnabruiach is taking in its handy wee platform for the winter, quite scenic up there on such a day! Re mention of Loch Striven.....now thats an eerie place!!

Craig - yeah thats the same problem, seemed to be getting worse as the season went on, just not got round to doing anything about it yet. Will try and have a look over the next few weeks.

Tornado - Striven is only eerie when were not there...

Just taken delivery of my brand new 7.5 Tornado , berthed at Largs, so I'll certainly be out and about this Winter (that and occasional appearances at the helm of certain large orange Humbers!).

Unfortunately the "sinking pontoon" at the Royal Hotel in Tighnabruich is already conspicuous by it's absence - time to dust off the old tender!

think it will be the impellor. cheap if ure handy with the tools. (hammers!!!)
I'll be able to do it after the autumn series is finished at kip and largs which will be in 3 weeks so it will be really cold then!!!! Have to scare the penguins off the bow

Was thinking it was the impellor, but I had already replaced that at the start of the season before the problem started happening!

Forth this Sunday???

The long range forecast for Sunday currently looks reasonable (dry, light winds) for the Forth on Sunday. Probably the last chance I'll get before chrimbo now! Am planning on a hangover so not an early start and no nav lights so it won't be a long day (sunset 3.39pm) - but enough for a blast - if you are likely to be around...
