Seariders are the perfect smuggling boats. Put all the drugs in the hull and then put a big bung in it. Put in a deck hatch and when it is open you can only see the first hull.

Seal Bay is on our patch near Moylegrove....between Cardigan and Newport....

The blokes involved aroused suspicion because they weren't local (this is a local pub for local people) and were sending large notes (50) over the bar.....They'd also built a false fibreglass door to the cave they were using (camouflaged to blend in) and aparrently had dried resin on their hands /clothes....

They stuck out like sore thumbs....don't mess with the West Wales Mafia (Tafia), they'll find you out

I remember visiting Seal Bay soon after the incident and finding fibre glass lining a cave on the little beach .....it had largely been demolised by the authorities but there was still evidence of misdoings ...... We now go ashore there every easter and collect buoys/rope/driftwood etc ..... its a real treasure trove for beachcombers .....Apparantly a whole bale of drugs washed ashore at Newport beach but this maybe a myth .......
