+1, I agree with Kerney

I think you both did really well, boat looked good in the water too, it's a braver man to be realistic and enjoy the day without either getting hurt or aching for a week after. ( we did something similar many years ago, continued on when we should have turned back and lived with bruises and achy joints)

We started with a 5m humber assault which as you all know is a shallow vee and we would have probably done the same. Boat was great for the majority of times, but not the run out of Conwy!

You did really well, glad you enjoyed the day. Still smiling at the end

Nah. As long as you've updated your charts and reviewed all the Notices to Mariners you shouldn't have any problem at all!

The latest ones regarding the controlled explosions of UXO on the Gwynt y Mor site should focus your attention

You have the luxury of both big and small ribs though my friend. I long for a bigger one, if you'll excuse the phrase

As for the stare? well we've all had that at some point.

Anyway, I was led to believe that size isnt everything, it's what you do with it that count's............maybe I'll think twice
