Hurricane Due in Scotland

Oi, would you lot over on the West Bank please keep your hurricanes in check. We don't need them this side of the pond. England has damp foggy weather, not this

Re: Hurricane Due in Scotland

Have an extra dram and I don't think you'll notice. Besides, think of the nice warm, tropical air we're sending your way.

Think of the taste of the whisky in 20 years as all that seaweed is thrown over all that peat!

Also, the wind turbines will brighten the lights of the English.

Re: Hurricane Due in Scotland

Unfortunately he can't stop hurricanes, just calls them stiff breezes.
Just been looking at our delivery trip, Boatie, 233 miles in 43 hours that I was with you. Not bad. Good bits and another bad run across Chichester Bay. The same place that wrecked all but one of the English Navy back in Marie Roses day

Re: Hurricane Due in Scotland

Right, the genoa is off, storm lines and extra fenders fitted. Back home now to put garden furniture in the garage. Summer is over so I need to fit the winter tyres.
