Hi Martin

Yes, although I do struggle to lift it on single-handed as it's a lot higher than the back of my estate car.

I also manage to get the (folded) outboard trolley and some petrol containers on there, before covering it all up with tarps.

Still have to store the outboard inside when travelling, though. And it's always in the way!

:cheers

Thank you very much gwozog, 9-R and Paul. It was a real hoot creating the story of Lomo man, especially as there were no phone boxes/booths on Pabbay Mor for him (and Lomo girl) to get changed in!

For August's competition, I am aware that not everyone has easy access to white shell sands, leaping dolphins, ancient castles on islands, Super Heros etc., so to open the competition up, the theme of this month's photo competition is....

"Interesting boats and ships!"

There are very few ground rules but the photo must have been taken on the water from your or a friend's boat by you. The vessel pictured should be bigger than your boat but may or may not be moving. If the subject is moving then any rights of way violations will be deleted on sight, as will pictures of jetskis surfing on ferry wakes. Other pictures of jetskis might just be allowed but you will need to convince me that your boat is very small. The Gurnard may enter, praise may be heaped, but he won't win, due to the fact it could be seen as a stitch up.

The photo will be judged on both the interest of the subject (a few words of title/background information will be welcome but not essential) and the photographic composition.

Some examples of subjects might include ferries, warships, container ships, tankers, bulk carriers, life boats, fishing boats, wrecks, cable/pipe laying ships, lighthouse/navigation buoy support vessels, cruise ships, yachts, square rigged sailing boats etc.

I have very limited 2G/3G internet access at the moment since I used up all my satellite broadband allowance watching the above mentioned Gurnard's videos. However, I will try and post some example photos when my allowance is renewed.

Good luck and have fun on the water over the holidays.

Douglas

PS as long as they are your photos, they do not need to be taken this month.
