mcanderson: Thank you for the link to charges. I hope my reply didn't read as having any sort of a pop at you or your suggestion. I was just really surprised at Granton's lack of shorepower.
Sounds like you have a fin keeler, so I guess there are less options for overnights unless you want to strap your yacht to the wall (not my idea of fun, but I've seen it done).
All the best...

As for shorepower at Granton, most local boats are on moorings so they don't have a shorepower system, and I suspect fitting, running and accounting for one was more than the clubs were willing to put up with. If you need shore power then your choices in the Forth are limited.Peter

[QUOTE=maxi77;3400380]You should try the Anstruther muster and see the fin keelers rafted up leaning agaist the wall. Works fine once you get the hang of it. One year we were lucky and the harbourmaster put us between 2 heavy bilge keelers that worked
We were there this year with our fin keeler which draws 2m. It wasn't too bad as you just tend to sink into the mud, so no precarious angles achieved, thankfully!!

The lack of shore power is a bit of a bugger, but nothing a small generator can't fix.
Maxi77- living Fife you can make up for Welsh's with a nice fish and chips at Anstruther. I loved the Raymond Blanc series when he was showing off the quality of seafood from the Forth and he gets his lobsters from there.
