been on both your boats, with Neil's as said had a look round and price, well i think your bits will ruin the best part of a day, i'll pm you later, KY's, i've done the fuel lines and cut/polished the steel for the bracket, got to weld it up, i'll pm you also, i'll have them done this week as i'm down in portland doing the yacht racing chater stuff for 4 days starting sunday the 4th, i'll be off by boat either saturday night or early sunday.
the chances are you'll be wanting to use them over the easter break

That's great - thanks Biff - we can pick up after Easter so no worries to rush beforehand if it helps - otherwise more than happy to collect next week

Hi all

I did a practice run for you this weekend! I had a late opportunity to gatecrash someone elses weekend and made the most of it. We went waterskiing and wakeboarding on Saturday and cruising out to Skomer on Sunday. The skiing etc was good fun but the water was a bit fresh to say the least. The cruise was excellent, we saw literally thousands of Puffins rafted in the bays of Skomer, porpoises at the end of Jack Sound and seals around Rye Rocks.
Logistically I launched at Gelliswick and left the boat in the marina at Neyland overnight for a princely sum of 13.95.
Personally I avoid Dale for launch and recovery because it is simply too manic with poor access to the slip, on a bank holiday I wish you the best of luck. I am not talking Dale down, it is a great place to come in against the jetty and a great place to camp, have a beer etc but the slip is tight and congested. If i was camping with you I would either get up at stupid O clock on the days you want to launch and recover before the crowds arrive or go somewhere like Gelliswick or Neyland where there is more room.
I hope to join you on at least one of the days so look forward to hearing about your plans as you get closer to the time.
If you have any questions about boating in the area let me know and I will do my best.

Sounds like a good weekend, woot.

Puffins must have only just arrived.


PS
Agree with all woot says about launching/recovering at Dale. I usuallly opt for the public slip at Neyland (FOC), or Lawrenny Yacht Station (8.00 charge) for all round convenience.

Woot - thanks so much - that's really helpful

Just to make it really clear to all - I KNOW NOTHING - we were planning on taking our RIB up to Dale at the Bank Holiday and so I thought I would open it up to all, but please don't think I know anything about RIBs or the waters around the Pembrokeshire Coast - as I don't and will be looking at the more experienced amongst us to take direction from.

So with regard suitability of launch sites etc am more than happy to use Gelliswick and mooring over night sounds a good plan.

Woot if you are free over the weekend I would really welcome your guidance and advice - no worries if not - and whilst I know that some of the RIBnetters attending are incredibly well qualified re RIBs I'm not sure any of use know the Milford/Skomer water.

So just to be clear - any help would be much appreciated and for all those attending please do be understanding of me not being able to answer a single question - oh and of course if its even slightly rough I won't get any of my family of terrafirma

You do all realise that anything RIB related involving the Rolfe's usually is anything but straightforward - so welcome to Jean's World
