hi glow, i spend a lot of time on a site outside of holyhead which is really nice and has easy launching, however i think i would recomend trearddur bay for somewhere that is pretty sheltered and with plenty to explore without venturing out too far.

Thanks, I will check it out. Will my 6hp on a 2.9m airdeck be sufficient for light coastal pottering?

I have my eye on a 9.9hp Yam but will have to see if its manageable weight wise, and what sort of deal I can get on one

I only have a 3m SIB at the moment but plan on adding a RIB when funds and space allow.

So far I am really impressed at the content on here, I am looking forward to finding out more as I get further into it!

Hoping to get out this weekend after fitting launching wheels and picking up a better outboard last weekend!
Welcome Glow.

You should check out "N.Wales Round Anglesey RIBnet Rally.." POST!!

Saturday 28 April 2012 - 32 RIB's confirmed. Lots of people are staying over and indulging in a delicious hog roast dinner

Thanks for the welcome, looks great! Unfortunately I have this little lot to look after! Welcome to Flickr!

Plus I think my little sib would get left behind!

Maybe next year!

Hi There,

not too far away from you as we're in Holcombe Brook.

Regarding the Lakes we go to Waterside House Farm at Ullswater. Great campsite next to the lake, free launch etc, and a short but stunning walk into Pooley Bridge wher there a 3 pubs (2 good) with food .

PS: Did my VHF course at Hollingworth Lake

We stayed at Pooley Bridge last year and I got quite a bit of fishing in, I will check it out come camping season this year.

As soon as the pups go I will be in a position to get some overnight trips in, and hopefully pick up a bigger motor

Welcome Glow, we holiday at Trearddur bay and it is a very nice place to launch, we stay on a camp site called tyn rhos (not correct way to spell) which is very close to the bay, some good days out around this area, have you looked at Treath Bychan just above Benllech, this is more sheltered for your sib if you need to get familiar with it again.

Thanks, we will definately look at it when booking in our trips this year, I absolutely love Anglesey, if only I could find a job there...
