Cheers, Greg.
Couldn't identify the boat? At that time, in that location on the Thursday before Good Friday, you'd be unlucky if you couldn't read the engine number coz you'd be doing no more than 5mph at best....

I found it more fun and challenging than train spotting.

We would like to join in on the Caernarfon to Conwy leg only if at all possible with anyone.

We obviously would be happy to contribute to fuel and make a donation to the very good Charity.

We would love to join in and be part of what looks to be a fantastic day.

Could you text or ring me on my mobile: 07779906372 or the landline 01492 330051 or message me here! .

Thanks so much.

Roger and Rache

PM Tim & Linda, they must have a spare seat on that monster!!
