WAFI on the rocks @ Pwllheli Harbour Enterance

Nice yacht - hope it was an incoming tide.

Reds and greens don't help you much ion our harbour - especially as they only dredged 3/4 of the channel......

The blithering idiots. IDIOTS!

How could they get something so simple so wrong. Name and shame them.

They put people's lives at risk...could they have been drunk?

Let the Ribnet court decide....

That is a nice yacht, but the bloke should be chucked out of the marina. He doesn't have an awful lot of luck. He tried going out bang on low water on a spring tide early on in the season and got grounded. He had to be escorted back to his berth by the Hafan Pwllheli boat. Tut tut.

I am pretty certain it is the same boat anyway!

Still, look on the bright side. Another nice picture to be stuck on your wall of what not to dos in your classroom 'ey!

I want to join the lifeboats, damn colour blindness!

Was he American? They have them the other way round over there. Just to be awkward probably.

Hmmm, I know the yacht Sonsy Lass, but not sure who the owner is...

There are a lot of idiots in the harbour though, mainly the bloody jet skis who seem to find it fair on people working on the boats in the channel to be going around too fast making a huge wake.

Not to mention the prats who came in to the marina for Wakestock. Idiots most of them on their speed boats, flying along past people (inc. me) in their small dinghies/tenders.

Rant over lol!

i entered the harbour only last week to pass a gin palace going the opposite way, about to plane 50ft from the entrance there were people riding his wake 500 yards up the marine
