Mass Boiler Testing


To get the season started a mass boiler testing at John Hendry’s. Do confirm you intend coming.   This should get us all having a start to the season before September!

1st - as before, the Mass boiler test

2nd and 3rd – Launching at Falkirk Wheel, up the wheel and along the Union Canal to Linlithgow. A contour canal, after the locks at Falkirk, it goes through a tunnel about half a mile long and across  the second highest aqueduct in Britain! Fish and chip or whatever supper at Linlithgow on the Friday evening. We have kindly been offered the use of the Linlithgow Union Canal Society’s tearoom for the evening. Saturday, returning to Falkirk and haul out.

If anyone is interested it should be possible to take them to Loch Katrine and/or Loch Ard, but Sunday is a ‘day off’.

Please contact Gudmund Jorgensen if you want to join us.
