lock lomond

Hi, will be going up to this area in a few weeks' time so may as well take the SIB, think I will have to launch at Balloch in order to get a registration number .Was having a look where to go/aim for, Does anybody know if Luss has public moorings where I can tie up for the misses to stretch her legs and look at the shops? can you moor at the island where the ferry goes to?

You can tie up at Luss on the jetty if room same at Ardlui. Tied up at firkin point as well
Thereís a pub on Inchmurrin with jetty as well
Avoid where the rangers tie up on the islands

I live in Tarbet on Loch Lomond. If you canít get on the jetty at Luss there is a big sandy beach you could use instead. Just be careful of the swimmers etc. Most of the islands have beaches you could use with care. No public moorings Iím aware of anywhere but jetties at Luss, Balloch, Inversnaid (donít miss the waterfall there itís impressive). The pub at Rowardennan at the foot of Ben Lomond is pretty good and they have jetties, and a beach. Thereís a jetty at Tarbet which is supposed to be public but dominated by the pleasure cruse company so best avoid that. Balmaha has a public jetty too I think, plus possibly visitor moorings. Nice pub there too. Oh and I think there might be a public jetty at Ducks Bay, helpful rangers at Balloch will guide you. Worth buying the LL nav chart thing which will list all the things to see, speed restriction areas etcÖ. Enjoy! It might be a busy and restricted loch but itís still drop dead gorgeous especially up Tarbet way

Should add Loch Long is also worth a look. Slipway at Arrochar suitable for a sib, also a public jetty and moorings. Take a trip to Lochgoilhead from Arrochar, stunning scenery and a half decent pub at Lochgoilhead. Also Ardentinny a bit further down Loch Loch Long very pretty with good restaurant.

Hi Mick, yes they said I could buy a board to do this, when I went on Windemere, I took some window board with me and a couple of old car reg plates drilled holes in them and tied them to the boat.

The size of the letters etc they give you is very specific now and they will not fit on a normal car reg plate

See, here it would be "Lough", pronounced as though one was expectorating.

One's as wet as the other if you fall into it...

Thanks for all the responses guys, unfortunately it turned out to be a non-event. it was mid-week and I parked in the rangers car park plenty of room, got the Honwave out inflated it , put the outboard on, to find the gearbox was leaking oil, somehow in transit I had punctured the casing, I still can't work out how it happened as it must of happened between taking out of my garage and arriving. We did one of the tour boat trips and there was a nice run between some islands in the middle that looked fabulas. on the opposite side of the cut to the rangers yard in the main village is a public car park, this gives access to a ramp it may be a public one I could not find any restrictions/signs. Positive bit at least I noticed it before going into the middle and breaking down.

Have you removed the prop & checked the shaft for fishing line around the oil seal?

If I have done it correctly this is a picture of the hole, with no line around the prop, what I thought was a crack from the prop shaft turned out to be a deep scratch/grove. ( I was pretty peeved when I saw this and it was covered in oil)

That hole looks like it should be there to me.
I wonder if the oil has forced its way out from somewhere due to expansion. Was it a particularly warm day. Failing that, that ďscratchĒ may indeed be a crack.

My thoughts as well. Doesn't look like an impact caused that hole as there isn't any surface damage around it.
