Sorry to hear you missed out and hope your missus makes a speedy recovery

I am positive I saw your boat leaving the Gazelle yesterday and decided to follow it to Moelfre as I thought it was you (didn't read this thread this weekend due to the mobile having low battery ).

Anyway the boat was shifting and I couldn't catch him TBH

Enjoyed the day at Moelfre especially the water fight but unfortunately our day ended prematurely as my mates child (who insisted that he sat in the suicide seat all the way) decided that he wanted to get off the boat so we returned Beaumaris where my mates wife gave him an ear bashing

P.S. Apologies to Chris, Jeff and Power2Gran for splitting off the group as I genuinely thought the yellow humber was part of the group on the day

Moelfre Lifeboat Day

Sorry I missed you all. It gets confusing as there's three of us that occasionally use it. We're all short and rotund too!

I'm sure the others will have been fine. Mr C will have been grinning all the way anyway what with his new little baby! I'd guess pow2gran too, has he not got the new RC 585 with140 suz? That alongside Chris's make two very desirable boats.

Catch up soon, hoping for bank hols one day.

Great day - first test of the RC585 in the chop. I think Loz would have preferred to have got off at Beaumauris too on the way home but endured the ride down the straits with a long face.

Thanks for the company of Jef, Chris and wacky.

The helicopter demo and the lifeboat is quite impressive as will be the new lifeboat station when it is finished.

There is always one irate bugger who didn't want to get wet from Loz's water pistol because they had not got a wet suit on! Also amazing that there were no collisions with so many craft in close proximity to one another. Hope to post a few pictures later.

Can't wait till next weekend when we have a full week at Coed Helen and are planning a few trips out if anyone is interested. Hope it is not too windy! Just a weeks work to do first though.

That's because my dad was fathing about in the bar and we were last to leave Conway

With the exception of Rocky and the Stingher we were first back on the Conway to Caernfaron run and had even recovered the boat by the time you showed up

Anyway I am expecting Mr Smith to be faster than my boat as you have more power

Top end speed is 40 knots which is also is in line with this test report that I found. Using about the same amount of fuel as the 2 smoke Tohatsu 60hp
