Honwave adventures

Post by Honwave lad » 27 Sep 2017, 20:13

Hi ladies and gents.
I'm Stuart or honwave lad. More of an old salt than lad but who cares.
Currently sailing a honwave t35ae with a 20hp 4 stroke.
Like Jake from Ayrshire (previous post) I too have a collapsible trolley with a modified tow hitch for caravan sites but recently bought a new bunked trailer.
I usually sail from puffin dive centre in oban as I use the caravan site at gallanach. I'm impressed with the adventurous spirit. I set off for mull from sound of kerrera but considered the swell a bit too fierce.
Looking forward to hearing of more adventures.

Hi Stuart.
I've got pretty much the same set up - Honwave 3.5ae and Tohatsu 20hp 4 stroke.
You narrowly missed the 2017 WWA adventure.
Oban is one of my favourite areas in the UK.
I live in Ayrshire and as such enjoy fishing / exploring in and around the Clyde Coast as well as the Dumfries and Galloway Coast.
Don't be shy if you fancy some company

Hi Stuart, and welcome to the forum, I'm based in Oban so next time your up give us a shout,I'm up for a wee trip out if work allows :welcome

The crossing from the bottom of Kerrera to Mull is quite a rough stretch if the conditions aren't good, not something for the faint hearted

Hi Stuart, Welcome aboard buddy :party

We fribbed and sibbed our way round kerrera just this month whilst awaiting the start of our WWA 2017. Sitting across from the dive centre eating our butties on a beach was so stressful :mrgreen:
You guys up north have some spectacular views & beaches with a mixture of boating possibilities no matter what the weather, I'm so envious !!!!

Enjoy the forum pal, we've a superb group of members all willing to share their knowledge and experience... Living where you do, well i dare say you'll bump into one or two. :drive

Martin :cheers
F-RibsAndSibs.Com.... :whistle
Because it's a big old WWworld out there :mrgreen:

Hi and :welcome to the forum :D
Great setup you have there and very capable :drive
Looks like you've got everything covered with transportation ;-) .....trolley when you need to fold it up for away in the caravan and trailer when not 8-) I know exactly where and what you mean about the swell as we stopped for lunch opposite Puffin dive club. Within a short distance conditions changed and as we rounded the south side of Kerrera the swell was up to around 3m, however as we passed though the gap between the small island and races the conditions quickly settled down :D
The fast changes in the sea conditions caused by the islands and water movement are challenging for sure and best tackled in company just in case things go wrong :idea:
BTW keep your eye on the events section if you fancy some boating in company :idea:
Good to have you aboard
I walked through the door marked 'EXIT' and life is now good!
