Re: Mukluks

This Thermarest thing that makes a chair out of your mattress might be thrown in or form its own separate "sale" in same price range and Ts&Cs. Its the more complex kind where the mattress lives in it, a chair by day and a bed by night. I prefer the simpler type myself ............ DWalsh O87 254 6O54

Mukluks

Otherwise, essentially, fur lined wellies. The "must have" accessory for anyone with northbound ambitions for post-Covid. Never rallied or raced, used only by one careful owner on a couple of trips. Need only a new home, unless someone is prepared to pay, in which case a maximum price of one bottle ...

Beeves Rock now in Oileain

Oileáin has received its 587th island thanks to WISKA members Brian, Ruth and Sinéad who guided me safely there from Crovraghan Pier on last Saturday a beautiful sunny day. In passing we also tidied up some information about Coney, Trummer, Doon and the mighty Canon friary. A great day out and thank...

Re: Ghost Ships

A synopsis ...... MV Alta is neither the first, the last, nor even (by a country mile) the most interesting ghost ship to land up on the Irish coast, or maybe any coast. That accolade surely belongs to the Zorro Zaurre, a Spanish fishing vessel that was swamped, abandoned awash, and thought to have ...

Ghost Ships

M.V. Alta has been splashed all over the newspapers as a remarkable "ghost ship" story but dedicated followers of Oileáin know only too well its in the halfpenny place beside the story from Roancarrigbeg on the Beara peninsula. Head for "www.oileain.org" and open "Oileáin" and search for "Roancarrig...

Re: High Tides in Venice

Knotman, I still struggle. When the LWs get really low, should not the HWs also get really high? In Galway I have always operated off a simple enough formula that (ignoring extreme outliers) high HWs get to 5.6, low HWs only to 3.6 and the average is 4.6, while low LWs get to 0.1, high LWs only to 2...

Re: High Tides in Venice

Knotman, There are big tides the next few days which we tend to associate with flooding (a HW 5.6m + sustained west winds as well, Galway beware), but the low waters are also very low including one LW 0.1m beloved of razor fishermen. Is that what we are seeing here, big tides going a long way out at...

High Tides in Venice

Apparently Venice is experiencing unprecedented high tides this last few days causing immense damage in a spot where high water is a regular occurrence, so there must be something very unusual going down. First research stop was the tide tables for Galway, which maxed at 5.0 a few days ago, on say W...
