Conwy - Sunday 25 February 2007

Hi

Looking to go out from Conwy on Sunday Pm

this will be the first voyage of my new RIB which I am picking up on Saturday so will be keep to try it out new Medline 1 with 60 Yam

question


I have launched from here before at a low tide but not sure as to the size looks like a 4m tide LW@ 11:22 HW @ 17:10 possible time will be around 1pm what do you reckon ?

alternativly is there any other slips around with better tidal ranges, thought about Rhos on sea but have not tried it before, I am not keen on going all the way down to Pwllheli as will be down there week after

http://easytide.ukho.gov.uk/easytide...&HeightUnits=0

of any ones about or keen to join then your welcome

should be a couple of us anyway

Andy

Sorry floater, busy with prep for eldests wedding otherwise would come out, especially as boat in Conwy!
Menai Bridge slip is an alternative or Port Dinorwic but watch the tides at Dinorwic. You can contact the HM his number is on the Marina website to find exact details.

The Medline Floats

Thanks

We had a great afternoon, went up the river to the bridge, taking it slow as need to run the engine in, dinged me prop mind put it on the trailer as water not deep enough or should that be trailer not in water enough !!

managed about 25knots at 4500 rpm

wondered who you were at first in the dark and all that !
car pulls along side and people waving and shouting

see you soon
