video of menai strait cruise past snowdon



Nothing overly exciting. But a 5 minute journey at 30-50mph in a 6.3 humber ocean pro with 175 opti. view from Beaumaris to Puffin Island, then travel up to Menai Suspension bridge, passing Snowdon Wales' biggest mountain on the left and beaumaris on the right, including Bangor Pier, Gazelle hotel and Menai itself. Flat calm, sunny, but cold. Snow on the mountains that morning.

Season has begun.

definitely, will pm you nearer the time. Still intending on travelling from beuamaris round the llyn, weather depending either to bardsey island and back with stop at morfa nefyn, porth dinllaen, or if nice, continue round to abersoch. Moor up and kip over either on boat/on beach/ or in mates house. Then back round.

yeah, it was very cold, they'll balloon as it gets warmer. Though yes, needs a bit more air.

Can I ask what compass you are using there? I have a Humber dual cruise console and am unsure what compasses will fit flush mounted but see you have one flush mounted in your console.
