Jizm and Pete - the drybags that you're talking about, do they have rucksack straps? 'cos if I go on a BIBOA cruise I always end up in the furthest hotel from the marina!

The ones i have do not have straps am afraid - but they are quite easily carried with the top?? ( depends on how far your hotel is away - i do know that the rucksack ones are about 45 ( bought one for my motorbike years ago)
If you wanted one would send, and if you did not want it would send you your money back??
Cheers
Pete

Right I can speak from the experience of last weekend when Spidey, Manners, Ged and me tramped round Pwelliboot for an hour trying to find a bed(s) for the night.

GET ONE WITH SHOULDER STRAPS.

The long arm of the law? That'll be PC Gibbon
(from Vivian Stanshall's Sir Henry in case anyone remembers that)

Pete - thanks for that. I definitely want the rucksack shoulder straps as I've suffered the same fate as Keith before now. And you don't 'arf feel jealous of the clever sods with their gear comfortably on their backs

These work great

Many of us use these on our side of the pond. They are bomber. Take lots of abuse and have carrying straps.

Keith, that's why you should have accepted the offer of staying at the caravan like I did! I was finally getting some sleep whilst you lot were trecking round Pwhelli looking for rooms! Great view over the bay too.

But yeah, backpack style straps are a must when there's any walking involved.

Caravan

I was also staying at the caravan but still ended up trecking round Pwllheli. The best drybag system for carrying I found was send the Mrs on ahead so she's there waiting when you turn up! Works well for me (but don't tell her I said so). The boot of the car saves the strain on the shoulders!
