Great video and looks like everyone had a great time.
I like north Wales myself so was wondering having just aquired a rib if you had any other experience of boating around north Wales or the Menai area?

Hi Tony T

great video, fantastic weahter, an even more fantastic Domino, the sound of a really good sounding Etec and as far I can see a lot of beers too (as to that you should come to Belgium of course because we have the best beers in the world ). What should you wish more??? Waves perhaps because that is the natural habitat of our Ribquest!!!!!

Ears burning! Ive been quiet recently and in hibernation usually until april boat wise. Yep menai strait has a lot to offer, plenty of access points, sheltered boating whichever way wind is going, which is v handy if you've spent a long time to get there and committed to going out!

Lots of fishing, beautiful backdrop on both sides of you, 3 castles in 25 miles, countless pubs and bays, 2 bridges, an island with seals and puffins, etc

I love it!

As TT says, over winter I'm sure we'll be setting something up for late April early May. We had a run out with 18 boats this year, even with awful weather. You'll be welcome to tag along!

The nearest I've been to the water is the last two years were we've popped to Beaumaris were it's nice to walk along the front and see what's going on

Looks very inviting, bit too far from Hull so would have to be a weekend special

Probably be doing rivers with SWMBO as I think she may not get used to the excitment of a rib at sea but hope to do some sea fishing of Whitby etc. Would like to bring the boat to Wales though as been there for quite a few years now as there is plenty to do and a nice place to boot.

Visited Abersoch last year and that was very busy for boating compared to other places.

Si
