Re: Pic of the Day

Personally I think you would get less politics etc. involved if you go permission from the Marquess of Bute to use a flag bearing his arms. I did look for an agreed or official flag for the Isle of Bute but all there appears to be are proposals, many incorporating elements of the Marquesses arms. Us...

Re: Return to the Water

This sort of conflict is definitely not 'my thing' but if there is a lot of 'tittle-tattle' going the rounds then would a (easy to find, probably temporary) Frequently Asked Questions page on the website be useful?

Re: Pic of the Day

I should have made it clear that I had worked out about the centreline rivets. However, being a boater, certifiable genius, and annoying smart-arse, those big dark holes in the bottom of the hull struck me as sub-optimal. 'Snagging' you say?
