The best part of the story was that this "bio-ethanol" is created from surplus British wine .

Honest to God - the future King of England runs his Aston Martin on WINE!

Could the Pythons do any better?
From what I tasted of English wine that would be the best thing for it.

Rockter will become famous soon enough
Come to Loch Ness and I'll sail you about a bit and give you a beer out of my American fridge.

There is a nice castle there you can visit, and you can motor through a beautiful canal system too....

Loch Ness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The canal is beautifully sheltered. There is no swell. There is very little chop....

Dochgarroch Lock - Scotland, United Kingdom

And I don't work for the tourist board. I just like the place.

.... and so you should. The Caledonian specifically and Scotland in general have to be right up there as prime cruising grounds.

tdw :

If any of you make it up here, either sailing, or road tourist, send me a PM and I will meet you with my ship.

It really is very pretty there.

Though it can get a bit breezy, at times.

This is not my ship, but gives you an idea....
