Wouldn't bother taking it its not like they will know and your not alone out there.
I watched Monty Halls going across to St Kilda the other day his aux was rocking about all other the place.

How are they going to know what you have? If you break down, you're getting towed in. If you flip a boat, I can't see the Aux being a factor, equally if you nail another boat and off someone.

Cheery, that's me.

Details so far

I have booked in to the Premier Inn Caernarfon on the Friday night so if anyone is around we can meet up for a chat/skippers meeting over a meal and drink. The plan so far is to meet at Ty Calch on Saturday morning around 9ish for a coffee and final check over allowing time for everyone to be launched, hopefully set off around 10ish or before weather / tide dependant

As a few of you already leave your ribs with Chis at Ty Calch hopefully there wont be many cars taking up a lot of parking. We can either leave them at Chrisís if he has room or we can take them in to Caernarfon where there is a free 24hr car park next to the Premier Inn, Iím sure one of us will ferry back those that choose to use that facility.

Please make sure all boats are sea worthy and that you carry all the recommended safety equipment remember this is not a race but a weekends cruise with like-minded people. Each and everyone is responsible for their own safety and passage planning, its up to each skippers decision to go or not. Check that your insuance covers you for this trip
We will use channel 8 to transmit to each other call sign to be arranged
We should hopefully arrive at Dun Laoghaire around 1ish thatís estimating a 3-hour crossing travelling at around 20/25 knots. I think we should run in pairs with 2 lead boats and 2 sweeper boats. We need someone with A.I.S. etc to lead so Pikey Dave and Maximums have agreed to this with myself and another as sweeper boats. We all travel together with no one getting left behind. In the event of fog we will obviously slow down and group closer together, but lets hope its sunshine all the way.We will hopefully meet up with willk and the welcoming committee at some point to be arranged roughly around 5 miles out
Can you please confirm how many people there are on each rib so that we can inform the coast guard of our numbers ?

Saturday night if everyone agrees we can try to arrange a group meal bearing in mind the number of us 20 plus bodies can be a PITA standing outside trying to agree where to go, so we will need some feed back on this asp, but if you would sooner do your own thing thatís fine I,m sure the Guinness will be refreshing whatever or wherever you decide to go.

Sunday after a good breakfast and plenty of black coffee we will head to the Marina and for those that need to top their petrol tanks up etc nows the time ďwe wont mention any names will we DeanoĒ
We will then hopefully make our way for a trip up the Liffey river for a sight seeing tour before saying farewell to Willk and others and setting back to Caernarfon around 1ish arriving back around 4 oclock. This trip might might yet be arranged for the Saturday depending on our time of arrival we can decide on the day, some of you might need a little bit longer to recover from the Saturday night plus there is the drive home to consider once we arrive back at Ty Calch.

I have been in touch with Dun Laoghaire Marina and have been told we donít need to pre-book. But i will need to get in touch with them a couple of days before our arrival to confirm the numbers so that they can arrange a space for us.They charge Ä3.60/m for the night so for my 6.4m Rib that works out about £18.00

I am staying at the farm fri will prob drop rib off with Chris so I can leave motor at farm, I am sure if anyone else needs to park in there field they should be ok with prior arrangement.
Regarding a meal I would like to stick together for that at least before the big drinkers disappear into the night.
