How do you get to your river mooring do you use a tender or are as lucky as my wife and just walk over!

This is a sea mooring. If you moor your boat off Abersoch on a Yacht club mooring, the they will bus you out there in their launch for a few quid (and you get to use the bar/showers etc). High season is not always possible.

The biggest problem is getting to the boat when it's anchored close to the shore - and continually moving it as the tide goes out. Thinking of getting a small inflatable so's I can anchor deep and paddle in. Any suggestions?

Posts: 6,533 been to Abersoch and i know where the boats are moored. So yeah a fresh water supply is unlikely. I'd take it to the Harbour every couple of weeks and flush it through

I wouldn't worry about not being able to flush it at all if it's in reasonably regular use, once a season is fine. I've used outboards commercially and privately without flushing them more than once a year and never had problems.
