Indeed, unfortunately so much is reliant on the weather.
Would like, hope to, participate at some level.
Have to try and get some coastal experience in to guage suitability.
Don't suppose there is a great deal of difference between a 5m and anything upto 6m but guess when your talking about 6.5m plus the extra hull size and weight provide a much more stable craft which cuts through chop far better.

Si.

The beauty of Angelesy is there's always somewhere to run & hide if it does turn snotty. You'd be suprised what a well prepared RIB can handle, it's usually the crew that gives up first.

That's my attitude if you've not got the bottle, stick to canal's!
Done quite a few days around the menai while on holiday in North Wales and it's always looked about the best place for boating short of traveling to the south coast.
Role on next year!

A good 5m + rib is well capable of taking some rough, the only difference is, that you do get knocked about a bit more than a 6.5 mtr rib. The larger ribs are lot smoother due to the extra weight and length. Don't forget the under 5 mtr round Great Britain challenge a few years back

Thought the conversation had taken on a pub vib but looks back on subject.

Is the plan to definitely make a stop at Holyhead?

If so will fuel be available or are we looking to carry sufficient to cover the whole trip?

Si

Not sure if Holyhead have fuel. We will stop there for a refill of main tanks in the shelter of the marina, for those that need to whilst having a chat and a sandwich etc but I'd take enough to get round!
