Boat on the rocks Milford Haven

I was asked to attend the refloating of a 18' HB the other day which had broke its mooring overnight at Milford, the owner wasn't sure of outboard or hull condition after his boat had drifted 4 mile up river and settled on some rocks, turned out he was very lucky and there was no serious damage, and a tow wasn't necessary, A loose shackle is suspected for the break away, which proves the galvi wire fixing method is a good idea.

Prefer small cable ties as easier to remove

sorry bout that, I've checked my YT setting and every thing seems normal, my view counter seems to be climbing, here's a link to my yt channel, and another for the same vid with lower res, I wasn't happy ith the res setting on this one though.

Made in Wales - YouTube





PS: Agree the able ties are good too.

Travelled the stretch many times. At 2.45 in on video I have always wondered what is the large wooden stage on the right just before Milford? Were the donuts at the end Gelliswick bay?
