We did this in Black Rib(3 on board) with yamaha 115.Used 100 litres but this was very thirsty engine. Sea conditions vary a lot on way round - it was good fun - took about 3and a half hours. Can we come with Wave Dance this time? Dying to get on water but everytime we plan to go to coast it snows!!! Hopefully not on 27th!
P.S. Does anyone know if Menai slip is suitable for us to lauch boat with our campervan and would we be able to leave van at the boatyard?

As far as I know, the Menai slip at Porth Daniel is concrete all the way down, but access to it is a little bit tight. I've always found parking to be a bit limited.

It can also get very slippy, especially towards low water. But might just be my crap driving.

Will try and make it over and will probably have a spare seat if needed Tim.

Leaving the Rib

If you give Terry a call at Porth Daniel boat storage on: 01248 717784 tell him what you are doing, I'm sure he can fix you up for the night with the storage. He will also recommend local B+Bs etc.

There is plenty "pay & display" type parking aprox 250m away just off the main high street.....Your right, parking is limited in the slip area and its getting worse now that there is developments of the old buildings into posh holiday homes!!.
